Black Lives Matter – A Statement
DATE: 1 June 2020
York Museums Trust stands in solidarity and in defiance against the systemic racism infecting and destroying communities and lives. We have watched the tragic events in Minneapolis and across the United States unfold with great sadness and horror.
The need for change is unquestioned, the urgency never more explicit. As museums, we have a part to play – to question, to provoke debate and to never shy away from difficult conversations. Justice for George Floyd.
