We in Classical Studies at BU share in the national grief for lives cut short by racism. Our grief comes not just from the moment but from the recognition that this moment in time is the latest iteration of our country’s history of oppression and prejudice. We endorse the Society of Classical Studies’ Statement on Police Brutality, Systemic Racism, and the Death of George Floyd.
