03/06/2020

Josette Bushell-Mingo, Head of the Department of Acting at Stockholm University of the Arts, writes in the newspaper Expressen about George Floyd's brutal death that shakes an entire world and why racism also affects us.

– Stockholm University of the Arts wholeheartedly supports Josette and everyone else who actively works to counter racism and oppression. Like so many others, we are deeply shocked and appalled at the heinous police violence that led to George Floyd's death and we want to forcefully condemn this act as well as all racist acts. We all have a great responsibility to work together to combat the structural racism that exists in our society as well, says Paula Crabtree, Vice-Chancellor at Stockholm University of the Arts.
