NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — The conversation about race continues on Yale’s campus tonight.
Students dressed in black today to show support for students at the University of Missouri, who have been dealing with racial tension over the past few weeks.
Last night on Yale’s campus,students took part in a “teach-in.” Cameras weren’t allowed inside, but students say the discussion was really helpful, and showing support for students at Missouri is a no-brainer.
“In these moments, we gather strength from being together. It’s not only a sign of solidarity for the Mizzou students and the folks outside these walls, also, it’s a moment coming together for ourselves,” said Amber Koonce, President of the Yale Black Law Students Association.
