Statement from Studio in a School
These last few days have left me overwhelmed, angry, and empty. The senseless killing of George Floyd, the multiple expressions of outrage over the aggressive treatment and deaths of black and brown people while in police custody, the peaceful protests, the riots. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. reminds us that riots are “the language of the unheard.” At Studio In a School, in the face of this tragedy and global pandemic, we know that now is the time to challenge our assumptions, reflect, and actively address racism in our communities. Studio in a School condemns brutality and violence against Black people and is committed to addressing racial inequity in this country, specifically, in the education system.
