AMST Statement in Solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter

The UH American Studies Department shares the indignation and sorrows over the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, George Floyd, and far too many others and stands in solidarity with our Black family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and their allies who are raising their voices against white supremacy. We condemn the ongoing anti-Black racism and police brutality and call for an end to the militarized police state at all levels. As a department dedicated to the understanding of U.S. history, society, and culture, we definitively reiterate that Black lives matter and renew our commitment to teaching, research, advocacy, and activism on interrelated issues of institutional racism, settler colonialism, militarism, heteropatriarchy, and racial capitalism.
