Ahead of a developing action plan in which we aim to make long-term and sustainable changes to the culture of the School of Theatre, Film & Television, we invite you to click the link in our bio to access a document containing resources and suggestions for action in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. We commend and stand with our T.A.P. students who compiled this list of action items that allow us all to take part in the fight for justice and against racism.Take Action Here
Juneteenth (June 19), a day of liberation, marks the day in 1865 when enslaved peoples in Galveston, Texas finally received word that they were free. This came more than two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and two months after the end of the Civil War. This was an important turning point for our nation, and it should be honored and celebrated by all Americans.
T.A.P. students have put together another wonderful resource with more facts about Juneteenth, and ways you can join them in celebrating!CELEBRATE JUNETEENTH
