Associate Dean’s Blog
On November 3, 2020, I commemorated Election Day by wearing a shirt that listed these names: Ida [B. Wells], Maya [Angelou], Fannie Lou [Hammer], Harriet [Tubman], and Sojourner [Truth]. I wanted to honor the legacy that Black women have had in Black liberation and in demanding justice and accountability of the U.S. in the face of its democratic ideals.
This is the first of what I hope will be periodic updates on our plan and actions to expand equity and inclusion, underway at A&S since 2017.
