"To the corporations who have been silent: We are watching, and your silence is inexcusable. Your employees, customers, investors, and suppliers deserve action. We expect to hear from you. To the corporations who have spoken out: Thank you for taking a first step, but calling for equality is no longer enough." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Read the full letter to corporate leaders from our student-run @aasuhbs: hbs.me/AASU-lettertoleaders

"I will resist the urge to ask HBS's Black community for patience and trust. People who have waited for centuries to receive what others get at birth should not be asked for patience, and trust must be earned. I will ask, instead, for the commitment of the entire HBS community to this work." —Dean Nitin Nohria A new letter about our anti-racism action plan: hbs.me/deanupdate6-16 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎨: @allycats.designs

Silent Lessons by @peggyochola (MBA 2020)⠀ ⠀ As we sit in the silence⠀ Black children learn that our bodies are human shields.⠀ Tiny, cute human shields.⠀ That can protect our parents.⠀ ⠀ If I hold his hand, if I walk next to him, ⠀ Dad can take a safer walk.⠀ Maybe, he can be seen as a person. ⠀ Non-threatening.⠀ ⠀ Black children learn that our voices are human shields. ⠀ We learn to beg, cry, plead: ⠀ “Dad, pleeeease don’t jog there.”⠀ Because your shield has failed. ⠀ ⠀ Black children learn, we quickly learn,⠀ That the world doesn’t see our parents as we see them.⠀ So, we start to ask:⠀ “Officer, will you shoot us?”⠀ ⠀ Black children learn that childhood walks away.⠀ ⠀ Our parents need to give us the ‘talk.’⠀ Not the one about birds and bees… the ‘other’ talk⠀ Before it’s too late. ⠀ ⠀ Officer, “I’m Ariel S. Williams… and I’m eight years old. ⠀ I am unarmed... I have nothing that will hurt you.”⠀ ⠀ Black children, we learn to memorize this script. ⠀ To say these words over and over again. ⠀ Over and over again. ⠀ ⠀ Because someday, we know,⠀ We all know,⠀ That our shields will also fail. ⠀ ⠀ I’ve read your curriculum, America. ⠀ I’m confused. ⠀ What do you want your black children to learn?⠀ From Emmett Till until today, ⠀ What do you want black children to learn?⠀ Is there an America for a people whose shields have failed?
