Statement Regarding Threats Against Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Posted: 
Wednesday, February 2, 2022

The Human Rights Commission is appalled and saddened by the threats of violence made against several Historically Black Colleges and Universities.  We condemn the threats and the implicit message behind the threats.  Racism and threats of violence have no place on college campuses or anywhere.  Education is vitally important to individuals, families, and communities, and students must be able to engage in their educational pursuits without fear.  We hope that the perpetrators are found and held responsible for their actions, and that life can soon return to normal on these campuses.
