Revisiting Rhodes

From the Archives: In this article from a February 1966 paper, graduate student Musa Shamuyarira wrote about the economic and social inequality between white settlers and native Africans in Rhodesia, a former British Colony founded by controversial British businessman Cecil Rhodes. Student activists at Oxford University, where a statue of Rhodes stands, have challenged his memorialization, arguing against the celebration of racist figures on campus. Efforts to remove his statue run concurrently with other national movements, including at Harvard, where students argue the Law School seal should be changed so that it does not endorse the slave trading Royall family, which endowed the school with its first professorship.
