City College Libraries' Statement on Black Lives Matter

City College Libraries is a haven for all individuals to discover, explore, and flourish in the knowledge that everyone is safe and respected within our academic environment. We are devastated and heartbroken by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, and many others at the hands of law enforcement. Communities across the globe are mourning and grappling with the impact of structural racism and the senseless brutality against unarmed Black Americans. Black Lives Matter! 

City College Libraries continue to assess, reflect, strategize, and be intentional in our work to eradicate systemic and institutional racism, police violence, and social injustice. If America is to heal, we have to dialogue no matter how uncomfortable it may be for all of us. City College Libraries encourage conversations about race, racism, health disparities, the impact of COVID-19 on brown and black communities, and the role we can have on student success and the Harlem community.  

The City College of New York, located in the heart of Harlem, has a long-standing history in the fight for social justice, equity, diversity, and equality for people of color. We honor this history and stand against police brutality, white supremacy, and racism in all its forms.
