William Morris and BLM


William Morris Society in the United States
Statement in support of Black Lives Matter

‘I do not want art for a few, any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few.’
--William Morris, ‘The Lesser Arts’, 1882

‘Times of change, disruption, and revolution are naturally times of hope also.’
--William Morris, ‘The Hopes of Civilization’, 1888

As a Society bearing the name of William Morris, who worked tirelessly to create a more just and beautiful world, we acknowledge our responsibility to fight against racial injustice. We pledge to examine our policies and programming to explore how they could better honor William Morris’s legacy. We will work to increase the diversity of our membership and of our governing committee. The William Morris Society in the United States believes Black Lives Matter.
