Students at the University of Pennsylvania removed a portrait of Shakespeare from a prominent location in the school’s English department after complaining that he did not represent a diverse range of writers.
Imagine, a picture of an English literary icon in an English department.
The Department had previously voted to remove the painting, so students took matters into their own hands, replacing the portrait with one of an African-American writer and delivering Shakespeare to the Department Chair's office.
