Yesterday around the time of the funeral for Michael Brown, our campus NAACP hosted a prayer vigil for his family. It was good for our students and the community to have a time to reflect and this about how we move forward in all of the Fergusons that exist across the nation.
We also had a nice story done by WDSU where a St. Louis native was interviewed as he has family in the area. Hopefully our students will be part of local solutions here in New Orleans to ensure that there is fairness and justice for all citizens so that we lessen incidents like this in the future.
