I, Too, Am Harvard is a powerful photo campaign highlighting the faces and voices of black students at Harvard College. Fed up with the institutional racism they face everyday, the students are speaking out against it by sharing their heartfelt stories in a series of portraits.

“Our voices often go unheard on this campus, our experiences are devalued, our presence is questioned,” they say. “This project is our way of speaking back, of claiming this campus, of standing up to say: We are here.”

The students from Oxford University have also begun a similar campaign.

Let’s see what the minority groups of these prestigious institutions have to say.
