The class of 2021 currently has over 60 students from the African Diaspora. Harvard, now has one of the largest classes of Black law students in its history. To showcase this excellence, the students created a photo-based social media campaign using the hashtag #BlackatHarvardLaw.
With this initiative, Black students in Harvard Law’s freshman class aim to mark their place on campus, while also encouraging the next generation of Black lawyers to fearlessly follow in their footsteps.
“When applying, we were motivated by the narratives and the pictures shared by law school students and graduates of color. It provided inspiration and showed that we can, and we will succeed. As current law students at Harvard, we each have incredible journeys and a sense of purpose that led us here. Our stories reflect excellence despite the obstacles that affect us as people of color in this country. We know that the number of Black law school applicants across the country has steadily declined. Through the pictures we have been sharing, it is our goal to encourage and empower our younger peers to dream big. We hope to show young people of color that there are folks like them thriving in these types of spaces and that they can, too.”
