Dear Members of the PHHP Community,
Shock and outrage have followed the horrifying killing of George Floyd, a tragedy that has fueled an outbreak of pent-up anger over the social conditions that have permitted a pervasive pattern of racial injustices across the U.S. Yet the dominant feeling for many of us is sorrow—a deep-seated grief emanating from the recognition that consequences of slavery continue 400 years after the first enslaved people were brought to the shores of this continent. As a nation, we have witnessed centuries of racial injustice and the development of an institutional racism that underlies the disparities faced by people of color in our country. Our sorrow stems from our sympathy for the victims like George Floyd and from a sense of helplessness that the situation has not changed.
