A Statement of Support of Black Lives Matter


Please consider signing this statement of support of Black Lives Matter co-authored by Anita Coleman, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and Myka Kennedy Stephens of Lancaster Theological Seminary. Note that this is an independent statement intended for those who are affiliated with theological libraries as well as college and university libraries that support religion and theology programs. Please feel free to share broadly among your own networks.

We do not wish to spark a debate. We are two library directors who wish to make a public statement in support of movements that seek to address systemic racism. Humbly, we offer this statement as an opportunity for like-minded religion and theology librarians and library directors to add their voices and support.
