Inspired by Black students at Harvard and the, “I, Too, Am Harvard” campaign aimed at shining a light on the plight of African American students at the Ivy League institution, a group of students across the Pond are following suit.
According to the group’s tumblr page, “I, Too, am Oxford” was a response to the multicultural students’ experience of being “othered” by their classmates.
“Students in their daily encounters at Oxford are made to feel different and othered from the Oxford community,” the group explained on tumblr.
The Oxford students participating in the project are of various ethnicities and nationalities, and hope their campaign will “demonstrate that despite there being a greater number of students of colour studying at Oxford now than there has ever been before, there are still issues that need to be discussed.”
