HAI Project Work Featured in Wall Street Journal and Washington Post
Research conducted by History Associates Incorporated on behalf of J.P. Morgan Chase & Company has received a great deal of media attention from some of America’s most well-respected newspapers as well as a host of on-line news outlets.
J.P. Morgan commissioned the research in response to the City of Chicago’s passing of an ordinance requiring companies with which it does business to research and disclose any links to slavery. An increasing number of U.S. cities, including Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Detroit, have adopted disclosure regulations similar to Chicago’s, leaving banks hungry for specialized research on slaves used as collateral.
