In above, these institutions are by no means the only American schools that have examined their relationship to slavery, at each of these two schools the debate was extended and consequential. For this analysis we rely upon interviews, newspaper records and other relevant institutional documents. In addition to the archival, institutional and academic material, the first author conducted a total of fifteen interviews with participants in the debate on the university apology. This sample included three administrators, seven faculty members, four students and one community activist, interviewed in June, July and August 2007 during a period of ten days spent on each campus. Each informant was asked about other relevant persons, creating a snowball sample. These formal interviews were supplemented with numerous informal discussions in Providence, Rhode Island, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Through electronic databases we searched newspapers published in Alabama, its contiguous states and Rhode Island, using search terms including “university,” “apology” and “slavery.” We then culled the resulting pool of approximately 3,500 articles to over 350 dealing with apologies for slavery preceding both university debates, and at the time of the debates themselves.
