    Radio Specials APM Reports Universities and the Slave TradeA growing number of colleges and universities in the eastern United States are confronting their historic ties to the slave trade. Profits from slavery and related industries helped build some of the most prestigious schools in New England. In many southern states, enslaved people built and maintained college campuses. This documentary will focus on three universities Harvard, Georgetown and the University of Virginia -- as they grapple with a deeply troubling chapter in their vaunted histories. At the crux of the story is the question of how these institutions might make amends for the ways they participated in American slavery and the moral, political and practical issues undergirding that question.

    Forum Ethics Expert Kirk Hanson On Data Breaches, Corporate Accountability Sunnyvale-based Yahoo announced Tuesday that every one of its 3 billion account holders was compromised by a massive data breach in August 2013, three times the number the company initially reported in 2016. Yahoo's announcement comes less than a month after the credit reporting giant Equifax revealed that a 3-month-old breach exposed more than 145 million customers' social security numbers and other personal information. And San Francisco's Wells Fargo, which remains embroiled in a fake-accounts scandal, acknowledged Wednesday that it improperly charged some borrowers mortgage extension fees. We discuss the ethical and legal standards governing corporations amid such scandals, and what more may need to be done to protect consumers' rights, property and privacy.
