“Today, we celebrate the 155th anniversary of Juneteenth, marking the occasion when the promise of emancipation proclaimed nearly three years earlier was finally realized throughout the United States. But, as we know, the struggle for true freedom and equality neither began nor ended there. As Jamelle Bouie wrote yesterday in The New York Times, ‘Emancipation wasn’t a gift bestowed on the slaves; it was something they took for themselves, the culmination of their long struggle for freedom … In fighting that struggle, black Americans would open up new vistas of democratic possibility for the entire country.’

Bridgewater State University fully supports the Black Lives Matter movement as it continues that struggle, a struggle to make our nation live up to its highest ideals of freedom and equality. Here, on our campus and in our community, we commit ourselves to bold action that puts into practice our values of diversity, inclusion and equality for all.” —Frederick W. Clark Jr., Esq. | Read more »
