Established in 2012, the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice (CSSJ) at Brown University is a scholarly research center with a public humanities mission. Recognizing that racial slavery was central to the formation of the Americas and the modern world, the CSSJ is a space for the interdisciplinary study of the historical forms of slavery while closely examining the ways in which these legacies shape our contemporary world. The CSSJ was established as a continuation of the work of Brown’s Steering Committee on Slavery and Justice, commissioned by then-President Ruth Simmons as a means of investigating the University’s own entanglement with slavery and the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
