Racism Discussed at KU

KSAL StaffNovember 13, 2015

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) —University of Kansas students and faculty have met at a forum to discuss the effects of racism, expressing frustration with school administration in Lawrence.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the Wednesday forum drew more than 1,000 people to the auditorium at the main student union on campus, with more watching from an overflow room.

The forum was announced Monday in the wake of recent student protests over racism at the University of Missouri in Columbia. Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little moderated the event, and listened as people voiced their experiences and concerns.

Several members of a group known as Rock Chalk Invisible Hawk took to the stage with signs and demanded actions from the school, including that the university hire a director for the Office of Multicultural Affairs by Dec. 15 and that concealed weapons be banned from campus.
