Allegra di Bonaventura is an assistant dean at Yale’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
Her review of the new Bloomsbury book, “Ebony & Ivy,” by Craig Steven Wilder, will do more to heat up the Yale-Harvard rivalry than almost any of those historic athletic contests.
For Wilder has written a book review in the Wall Street Journal on Jan. 2 that included the following:
Surely the large number of Ivy League alumni who were killed in action during the Civil War – because they believed in emancipation and so enlisted in the Union army – more than redeems the stigma of their academic forebears who owned slaves.
So did the considerable number of white Southerners who participated in the Selma march and so many other protests against racial segregation.
They stand in such distinct contrast to the still racially segregated Congressional Black Caucus.
When can this nation expect a release from this reverse racism?
