King’s College, which will grow into one of the U.S.’ most prestigious educational institutions, Columbia University, is founded in New York City by Philip Livingston. More than any New York merchant, Livingston has profited from the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, and he uses his wealth created by enslaved Africans to establish the college. One century from now, the university will unknowingly receive its first black student, James Parker Barnett, who will study at Columbia’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. After two years of study, in 1850 he will be exposed as a light-skinned African-American “passing” for white, and will be “Expelled for African Blood”. The university will integrate in the 20th century.
