CAA Signs on to American Historical Association’s Statement on Bomb Threats against HBCUs
posted by CAA — Feb 28, 2022
CAA has signed on to a statement condemning the many bomb threads received by at least 17 Historically Black Colleges and Universities early this year. As historically contextualized by the AHA, “These crimes are part of a long history of attacks on institutions that serve the Black community—churches, schools, and civil rights organizations—as well as on the individual men, women, and children associated with these institutions. Violent intimidation directed toward Black Americans has a long and bloody history, and recent events suggest that these acts have spawned not only a hateful legacy, but also a current, ongoing threat to the physical safety and emotional well-being of all Black Americans.” To read more visit their website.
