Harvard sued for 'exploiting' early photos of slaves, asked to pay damages to woman who says she's next of kin

Harvard University is being sued for “shamelessly” making a profit from photos of two 19th-century slaves despite requests to turn the photographs over to the slaves' descendants. Tamara Lanier filed a lawsuit against the institution Wednesday for “wrongful seizure, possession and expropriation” of images she claims features two of her ancestors.
