Harvard Alters School Song Due To Diversity Concerns

Harvard Alters School Song Due To Diversity Concerns, by Olivia Scott.

The lyrics, which previously read “till the stock of the Puritans die,” will now read “till the stars in the firmament die.” “Fair Harvard,” written in 1836, has only been altered once before in its history.

In 1998, the word “sons” was replaced with the word “we” to address concerns of gender inclusivity.

It doesn’t alter the past, which is what they really want to do.
