Black Student Union Demonstration
Seems like we've been here before, but...here we are again.
Today, members of Black Student Union organized a demonstration in an effort to raise awareness about the inadequate response by university officials to a black student who was the target of a racist slur. This march, like one in 2016 and one in 2015, is part of a continuing effort on behalf of African American students at SIUE to express their concerns.
