The Library would like to reaffirm the statement of the larger UMBC campus: "To our Black students, faculty, staff, and alumni: We see you. We support you. Your life matters. UMBC is and always will be a community that rejects racism, bigotry, and inequity in all its forms."
We have been sharing various resources and statements on social media throughout the week and have collected them here. We want to continue this conversation with all of you.
