Statement of support to the African Diaspora from Black student organizations regarding the noose incident

Between 1882 and 1968, the United States recorded nearly 5,000 lynchings, of which the overwhelming majority of the victims were Black. As terrifying and horrific as those figures are, lynchings are not occurrences of the forgotten past, but a matter of our present reality with investigations into possible lynchings being conducted as recently as 2018.
