The guest had been on the show to talk about the university's decision to spend £ 20 million to restore the historic financial support it received from people benefiting from the slave trade.
The university said it set up a Glasgow-Caribbean Center for Development Research together with the University of the West Indies to organize events, sponsor research and raise public awareness of the history of slavery.
The money will be spent over the next 20 years, with funding coming primarily from research grants and donations.
