Harvard Students Build Shantytown on Campus

Harvard students built a shantytown in the middle of the campus yard to get their administration’s attention in April 1986 on the issue of anti-apartheid. Several students slept in the settlement and some classes were held there. Despite opposition, the university eventually divested half of its business connections in South Africa by spring 1987.  (Photo: Jacob Russell via Wikimedia Commons)
