Diversity and Inclusion
American revolutionaries declared in 1776 that “All men are created equal.” History shows that implementing this idea has been the ongoing work of our country for more than two centuries. It is a challenge we embrace as teachers and address in our courses, books, and articles. Committed to improving our nation, state, and university, the History Department at Texas A&M stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and all citizens defending liberty and justice. Knowing our history and taking responsibility for it enables Americans to forge the “more perfect Union” envisioned by our Founders and advanced by Abraham Lincoln in 1861.
