Harvard Wants to Remove Christian Roots From School Traditions

Prestigious American university Harvard is considering removing a line from its ceremonial song that references its Christian heritage.

A Harvard professor claims the lyric could be racist, but a U.K. academic has described the proposal as “morally disoriented.”

Harvard takes its name from John Harvard, who emigrated with the Puritans to the United States in the 1600s and left his academic books to the institution after his death.
