Stained Glass Initiative

Our compelled response to slavery and historical racism

The Stained Glass Initiative has been established to further cultural restoration, healing and repair for descendants of enslaved Africans at Xavier University. Xavier’s Historical connections to slavery and historical racism are the impetus for SGI and the initiative includes projects that further our efforts to dismantle anti-Black racism, establish racial truth and contribute to repair, healing, and reconciliation.
