Students remove Shakespeare portrait at UPenn and replace it with photo of black lesbian writer amid push for diversity at English department | 12 Dec 2016 | Students advocating for diversity at the University of Pennsylvania have taken down a portrait of William Shakespeare from a prominent location on campus and replaced it with a photograph of a black American writer. The wall-sized black-and-white image of the Bard was removed on Thursday from the Hayer Staircase at Fisher-Bennett Hall, which houses UPenn's English department, and delivered it to the office of an unsuspecting English professor and department chair Jed Esty. The students responsible for the stunt then replaced the portrait with a printout of a photograph depicting poet and novelist Audre Lorde, who died of breast cancer in 1992.
