A STATEMENT ON CHARLOTTESVILLE

Humanities Tennessee offers our support and solidarity to our colleagues at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and all those affected by the recent demonstrations of bigotry and intolerance in Charlottesville. Our mission compels us to find ways to “nurture mutual respect and understanding essential to community.” The past weekend’s violence demonstrates the vital importance of valuing our shared history over divisive myths and of understanding our actions today as our history tomorrow. We hope you will join us in aiming to identify and eradicate the urges of supremacism and false patriotism that would proclaim the value of any person or group as greater than any other.
