Black Lives Matter! In the past two weeks we have seen a marked increase of American public interest in the BLM movement, corresponding to the recent killing of black men. Our lab member, Michaella Henry ‘21, who is herself Black, wrote a moving piece titled “Anything While Black: Experiencing America’s Quiet Genocide” on Medium. Her piece was chosen to be part of the first issue of Medium’s new blob, Momentum, a blog about the fight against anti-Black racism.
We are proud of Michaella and stand in solidarity with her in our support of the Black Lives Matter movement for transforming our country by eradicating systemic racism.
