Institute of African Studies
Recent occurrences of brutal racial violence in the United States in the form of the murder of George Floyd and many others have sparked a worldwide protest movement. We strongly oppose all forms of racially based violence and exclusion. We stand in solidarity with all who are committed to the fight against racism.
