The Greenville Journal wrote an article about the work of Furman’s Task Force on Slavery and Justice, which is examining the university’s historical connections to slavery. The report the group released in July included a number of recommendations for the university to consider. The Journal article included a quote from Furman senior Chelsea McKelvey, a member of the task force. “Reflection is what this entire report is based upon,” she said. “And since we have the collaboration of the faculty and the staff and the students and the administration, I think we’re all getting a chance to reflect on what the university was about then, what it’s about now, and what it will be about in the future.”
