Long Now Community, Since 01996, Long Now has endeavored to foster long-term thinking in the world by sharing perspectives on our deep past and future. We have too often failed, however, to include and listen to Black perspectives. Racism is a long-term civilizational problem with deep roots in the past, profound effects in the present, and so many uncertain futures. Solving the multigenerational challenge of racial inequality requires many things, but long-term thinking is undoubtedly one of them. As an institution dedicated to the long view, we have not addressed this issue enough. We can and will do better. We
