The American Oriental Society (AOS) condemns the wanton destruction of Black lives and stands in solidarity with and joins those engaged in the fight against systemic racism and the struggle for justice, equality, and human rights. We undertake to take immediate and deliberate steps to combat prejudice and hatred against African-Americans. Racism has no place in the AOS.
In the fields of study to which the AOS is dedicated is abundant evidence of pain and oppression inflicted on others because of skin color; it is beyond time to eradicate imagined divisions of humankind and to embrace equality and fraternity of peoples, regardless of skin color, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, or any other basis for oppression.
Due to the crisis of closure that we are in, the printed issue of 140.1 will not be mailed until further notice. The issue’s contents have, however, been posted online and the issue is available on JSTOR for all subscribers to view.
