Taking the Temperature of Diversity and Inclusion at BC in 2018

The “Silence is Still Violence” protests took place over a year ago, but just a few weeks ago, the anonymous advocacy and action group The Black Eagles staged a “die-in” in the shadow of Gasson tower to show the BC community that one protest one year ago hadn’t led to enough change. 

The Heights has interviewed administrators, faculty, and student leaders on campus about inclusivity, communication and transparency, the last year, what’s worked, what hasn’t, and what’s next in an attempt to better communicate why the marginalized populations that call BC home are calling for further action, as well as further introspection. 

Over the next few weeks, you’ll find the stories each of these people have to tell about their experiences, their identities, their shared struggles, and their shared triumphs.
