A Letter from Black Students at Tuck and the Consortium Student Group

By Consortium Student Group

The following message was sent from the leadership of the Black Students Association at Tuck (BSAT) and the Consortium Student Group on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 in response to the national discourse concerning racial injustice, police brutality, and the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd.

Tuck Community,

As you spend today supporting #blackouttuesday, please take the time to do more than simply post on social media. Use this time to educate both yourself and others on the history of racial injustice and police brutality in America. To help you in this effort, BSAT and Consortium have compiled a list of resources to assist you in learning more and taking actionable steps to be an ally.  Because this is not an exhaustive list of all available resources, we have included links to more comprehensive resource guides in the Additional Resources section.

This cannot and should not be an issue that only the black community fights against.
