A statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Faculty in the Department of History commit to continue our focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in our classrooms and beyond. We recognize that systemic racism has impeded the learning process for many marginalized students. It is our goal to overcome these obstacles by placing equity at the foreground of our discussions.

We support people's right to protest oppressive systems and to find ways to make their voices heard when they are ignored, silenced, or erased by those who hold power. As faculty who study the past and its ramifications for our present and future, we know that effective protests have not always been peaceful, and that "civility" is often a word deployed as a tactic to control people's behaviors. In "More Devoted to Order Than to Justice," Ibram X. Kendi wrote:

"If my ideological ancestors did not harass their political opponents, I would still be enslaved. I would still be segregated by law. I would still be one traffic stop away from death without any sustained movement insisting that my black life matters...Constructive confrontation is love."

As educators, we realize that our workshop is the classroom and our tool is knowledge. In our classes, students will learn about inequality and inequity, oppression, power, and privilege in history and in our present, and develop a critical understanding of the origins of systemic and institutional racism in the U.S. and the world, and the mechanisms by which they are enabled and maintained.

Dismantling oppression and doing anti-racism work requires us to reflect on ourselves, listen to the experience of others, and know history so that we do not continue to repeat it. In that spirit, we are providing resources to foster awareness, understanding, growth, and action.
