Letter to the Chair of the Cambridge Classics Faculty raising concerns about its anti-racist Action Plan


Earlier this week, it was revealed that the Cambridge University Classics Faculty intends to include notices beneath plaster busts of ancient figures in the local archaeology museum explaining that the whiteness of the casts shouldn’t be taken to mean that the population of Athens and Rome was exclusive white. This bizarre decision is part of the Faculty’s anti-racist ‘Action Plan’ and, on reviewing it, we discovered that other aspects are more sinister and potentially unlawful. You can read our letter to Professor Osborne, the Chair of the Faculty, raising these concerns below.
