A Message from Judson President Gene Crume
To our Judson students and their families, staff, faculty and alumni of color, my heart aches and my soul is burdened for you because of the experiences of racism and inequality you have experienced. I believe black lives matter. The specificity of this statement is important because systemic racism towards persons of color is real. I echo the words of Board of Trustees Chair Rev. Dr. Darryl Jenkins as he shared in his message earlier this week, “I share on behalf of the entire Judson University community please know that your pain is our pain.” Our community is deeply grieved by the violence, fear and inequity caused by systemic racial injustice and we are committed to working against these forces every day.

A message from Rev. Dr. Darryl Jenkins, Chair, Judson University Board of Trustees

Judson University Community Members,

This past Sunday was Pentecost. Instead of a celebration of every people, every language and every culture, the United States erupted into centuries old heartbreak concerning the sin of racial injustice. The events of this past weekend were precipitated by the death of George Floyd by a police officer in Minnesota. However, Mr. Floyd's death and thousands like it before him are the result of sinfulness. Judson University, as a Christian institution, is committed to bringing the light of Christ to the world, and we condemn the unnecessary death of Mr. Floyd, and the many others to include: Eric Garner (Staten Island, NY), Michael Brown (Ferguson, MO), Laquan McDonald (Chicago, IL), Tamir Rice (Cleveland, Ohio), Walter Scott (North Charleston, SC), Freddie Gray (Baltimore, MD), Sandra Bland (Naperville, IL), Jamar Clark (Minneapolis, Minn), Alton Sterling (Baton Rouge, LA), Stephon Clark (Sacramento, CA), Botham Jean (Dallas, TX), Breonna Taylor (Louisville, KY), and the countless others whose last breath were not captured on a device and never mentioned in forms of media, yet they remain precious in the eyes of God.

As a community of Christ-followers we would like to acknowledge the hurt and pain being felt by the members of our Black communities not only at this time but also in moments past. I understand that pain and hurt. As an African-American man, the struggle for racial equality has been a lifetime pursuit for my generation, the generations before me and our future. I have experienced prejudice in varied forms of injustice as a Black man in America from being stopped by police, monitored while shopping, in academia, and the injustices in the corporate and business community. As a Pastor our church members and I fight against racial and social injustices in the community every day.
