The Center for Studies on Africa and its Diaspora (CSAD) joins Atlanta, the nation, and the world in celebrating the life of U.S. Rep. John Lewis, our 17-term conscience of the Congress and lionhearted peacemaker and trumpeter for justice.
At the moment of this center’s launching, we find ourselves at the juncture of three overlapping pandemics: the global spread of the COVID-19 virus, which has exposed the rampant racial health inequalities that ravage our public health system; the economic downturn spawned by the virus’ spread and indexed by the unprecedented unemployment and negative GDP; and the social unrest and protests brought to a boil by the state-sanctioned violence towards unarmed African Americans by police among which are the latest, George Floyd and more recently Rayshard Brooks.
From President Mark Becker & Provost Wendy Hensel to Georgia State students, faculty and staff, June 9, 2020:
We wrote to you last week condemning the senseless deaths of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, in addition to those of Breonna Taylor and countless other African Americans.
The senseless killings of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd have brought forward understandable pain and anger about racism and violence against black Americans. There is no place for racism and violence in our society or at Georgia State.
