Classics Department Faculty statement on Black Lives Matter

We stand with our colleagues and our students to say that Black lives matter. We are committed to a future for Classics where white supremacy, racism, exclusion, and the biases of privilege not only have no place, but are actively confronted, examined, and expunged.

Our words here are brief but our commitments to anti-racism in the classroom, in scholarship, in our fields, and in our communities will not be. As we listen, we hope that you will join us in discussing these statements and resources set forth by members of our academic communities:
