What’s it like to be a minority student at an elite university? A student-led photo campaign titled “I, Too, Am Harvard” is highlighting the experiences of black students who are tired of people suggesting they don’t belong. The campaign has spread to other schools and is renewing discussions about race and campus diversity. With the help of four Harvard students we look at #ITooAmHarvard and the conversations it has generated. Join us at 19:30 GMT.
