Letters sent to students at UW-Madison

The defacing of a publicity poster for a theater production at UW-Madison — with the faces of Asian actors colored in marker — prompted a letter from school officials, urging students to watch for and confront racial insensitivity. Another letter, this time from the UW School of Nursing dean, involved the words “white is also a color” scribbled on a poster about awards to outstanding women of color. See coverage.
