The I, Too, Am Skidmore" campaign, inspired by campaigns at Harvard University, The University of Oxford, Cambridge University, Iowa, and NYU is dedicated to sharing the stories of people of color who have experienced micro-aggressions on college campuses due to the color of their skin. We invited students, staff, and faculty of color to write about their experiences as a person of color here at Skidmore College, micro-aggressions they have heard or personally encountered, and any other statements they wanted to make to the larger White Skidmore community on a whiteboard; and then take a picture with their statement. Our goal for this campaign was to empower the community of color here at Skidmore, and to provide more visibility for the community of color and the issues they face here on Skidmore's campus. We also focused on uniting our community of color and reassuring each other that we are not alone in our struggles, nor our frustrations.
