POSTED: June 9, 2020Category: ArticlesBY: Richard Moire

Our Role in the Black Lives Matter Movement and Anti-Racism Work

“It is paramount that international school students and alumni acknowledge our privilege not only on a local or regional scale, but also on a global scale. We must contextualize our opportunities and achievements within a global context, as well as understand how we benefit from global systems of inequality.”

Rachel Engel, a Sociology PhD student studying the impacts of globalization, colourism, and race/ethnicity in Southeast Asia, has addressed the role of the International School Community in the Global South in the Black Lives Matter Movement and Anti-Racism Work, in this open letter.
