Black fragility and privilege: black students at Oxford offered special consideration in exams in wake of George Floyd killing

Jun 15, 2020

Black students at the University of Oxford who feel traumatised by the killing of George Floyd will be able to apply for a reduction in workload and special consideration in their exams.

The extra support was outlined in an open letter sent to students by the university on Monday.

Signed by the vice chancellor Louise Richardson and the heads of Oxford’s colleges, it was apparently sent in response to concerns raised about the welfare of black students, following the police killing of Mr Floyd in the US last month.
