The College’s Academic Honor Principle was not a casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic’s disruptions to college life.

In one part of the documentary, “Welcome to Chechnya,” which debuted at Sundance earlier this year, a man identified as “Grisha” shares his harrowing experience of being arrested and tortured by Chechen authorities because of his sexual identification. The emotion conveyed on screen — fear, anger, sadness — is palpable. It is also not, in the strictest sense, real. Using a groundbreaking editing technique, the documentarians behind the film were able to digitally “swap” the face of the real Grisha with that of a volunteer actor, thereby protecting his identity without losing the essential human connection that comes with being able to put a face to a story.

We mourn the loss of those whose lives were unjustly cut short, and condemn the systemic racism that riddles American culture, institutions and politics. But the recent wave of protests and activism suggests that now is not just a time for grievance — it’s a time for action.

Gab Smith ’22 took AAAS 11, “Introduction to African Studies” last fall as a prerequisite for the African and African American Studies minor.
