The Isaac Hawkins Legacy site is the voice of two hundred of the direct descendants of Isaac Hawkins, one of the 272 black people who were enslaved and sold by Maryland Jesuits in 1838 to rescue fledgling Georgetown College from financial ruin. The name of our beloved ancestor was the first name on the ship's manifest that carried them from Maryland to Louisiana plantations. Georgetown literally owes its existence to the suffering, sacrifice and uncompensated labor of these men, women and children. This year is the 180th anniversary of that 1838 sale, and we will honor our ancestors. So the purpose of this site is to educate, to generate awareness, and to remind the university and the nation that justice is still owed to the descendants of the GU272.
