The Department of English Language and Literature endorses the statement, “Addressing Systemic Racism at Carleton,” with its concrete and material demands to help redress the legacies of systemic anti-Black racism in our community. Aware of the role that educational institutions have played in perpetuating racism in all its forms, we affirm our commitment to the potential of education as a decolonial practice. To this end, we join with students, faculty, and staff across this campus to call for the creation of an anti-racist university.
