Cengage Statement on Racial Injustice in the United States

June 2, 2020

Cengage CEO Michael E. Hansen today issued the following statement about racial injustice in the United States:

“The unjust murders of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and Breonna Taylor are painful reminders of the systemic oppression faced by the black community for far too long in the United States. The time is long overdue for our nation to finally face up to the persistent racial injustice that contributed to these senseless murders and other acts of violence. All of us must accept our collective and individual responsibility to create equality, justice and opportunity for all. Doing nothing simply perpetuates the hatred in our society.

“Black lives matter. So does what each of us does to confront racism and bigotry in all its sickening forms.”
