Dear MBU students, faculty and staff,
Yesterday we saw for the first time in a long time a glimmer of hope for the cause of racial equity and accountability in America.
Systemic racism is buttressed by a lack of social accountability. While justice for George Floyd was out of reach the moment his life was taken last May, we wished for accountability for his murder. History taught us not to get our hopes up, but in the end, accountability and progress triumphed over privilege and status quo.
