L.M. Montgomery Institute’s Statement on Racial Injustice

The L.M. Montgomery Institute (LMMI) supports the recent statement made by the University of Prince Edward Island and stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and those fighting against systemic racism in Canada and the United States. Montgomery’s books, short stories, poetry, essays, and life writing inspire serious scholarly work and have inspired many around the world who have been persecuted and disenfranchised. However, her work also requires us to look deeper into issues of colonialism, systemic racism, and intolerance. The LMMI is taking steps to educate ourselves, and are committed to learning from, and working with, BIPOC scholars, authors, and readers, and reflecting that active engagement in our biennial conferences, the Journal of L.M. Montgomery Studies, and in our community outreach and projects.
