We invite descendants, community members and scholars to join us in addressing the legacy of Jesuit slaveholding and moving forward together. If you believe you may be a descendant of the enslaved people held in bondage by the Jesuits or Saint Louis University, if you’d like to learn more, or if you want to contribute to this initiative, please contact the SHMR Project at or 314.758.7159.
