We acknowledge that these tragedies reflect long-standing racial injustice within our nation. We also recognize that our Black colleagues are exhausted and scared, and need space to grieve. Finally, we know that privilege and oppression exist everywhere - in our communities, on our campuses, and amongst our profession.
