Harvard is joining the pack of institutions disowning disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein. “Harvey Weinstein continues to lose accolades and awards — the latest institution to strip him of a commendation is Harvard University, which will revoke the Du Bois Medal Weinstein was awarded in 2014,” Erin Nyren reports in Variety. “The Executive Committee of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, which awarded him the medal, voted Tuesday night to take back the award.”

By the way, Henry Louis Gates sits on this committee.
