Academics for Black Survival and Wellness Week
- Event Location Online
In recognition of the toll that anti-Black racism, white supremacy, and racial trauma has on Black people, Academics for Black Lives are calling for White and non-Black People of Color to suspend all research activities and “work” that they benefit from (that does not directly serve Black people) for one week, beginning on Juneteenth, Friday June 19, 2020 through Thursday, June 25, 2020. The purpose of this week is to intervene against anti-Black racism and other forms of white supremacy as it manifests in academia and, in turn, enhance the safety and wellness of Black students, staff, faculty, and community members. There will be synchronous and asynchronous training through virtual mediums. Visit www.academics4blacklives.com to learn more, sign the petition, and register for the week. There is information for Black and non-Black people on the website.
