Activism at Oberlin College takes shape in various ways. While students typically take the lead, faculty and staff often engage, too. Holding placards with messages “black is universal” and “you matter,” these and other faculty and staff members took part in a black faculty and staff teach-in to prepare for a larger campuswide discussion on the state of black life within and out of the context of higher education.
In addition to the teach-in, faculty members of color also wrote an open letter stressing the need for continued conversations and meaningful action to bring about lasting change.
