Jones distributes masks at rally

Assistant Professor Dr. Andrea Jones attended the May 31 rally at the Malcolm X Memorial Foundation and distributed masks to attendees amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Jones says “the presence and support of my white colleagues during this difficult time has been helpful, yet it needs to be a community effort and I would appreciate our department being vocal and physical present during this time in whatever way feels comfortable to them.  Racism in America is not Black people’s problem to fix.  We need the majority (white Americans) to advocate and help shape this defining moment in history to provide justice for all and help eliminate the historic systemic inequalities.”
