The senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have deeply saddened America and our school community. These deaths follow a centuries-long list of such tragedies in the United States. The protests sweeping our country cry out for justice. Equally, these demonstrations are an outpouring of a broader despair and frustration about an American Dream that simply has not worked for millions of African Americans and other minority communities.
