The Hall Center for the Humanities joins hands with friends across this university, the United States, and the globe in condemnation of recent acts of violence against African Americans. These are the latest in a long chain of atrocities that date back over four centuries and cast a long shadow over the history of our country.
We reaffirm our commitment to supporting and highlighting humanities-based scholarship that recovers the voices and experiences, past and present, of African Americans. We are committed to playing our part in a movement toward justice, inclusion, and equality for everyone.
We join in a declaration that must be repeated over and over until everyone finally pays attention and absorbs its fundamental truth: BLACK LIVES MATTER.
