After the ‘Long Live Zimmerman’ Graffiti on Ohio State’s Black Cultural Center yesterday, it seems like students are stopping at nothing to make sure their voices are heard. At 8 a.m. this morning, students held a march from the Frank W. Hale Black Cultural Center to the Longaberger building to make their opinions known to the university. The goal was to attend the Board of Trustee’s meeting and list their set of demands, of which students believe the university should instill.
The three things students are asking are 1) There are Hate Crime Alerts 2) An increase in diversity among students and faculty, and 3) The voices of students are not tolerated, but instead heard. Laurel Davis, an Ohio State student who attended the march, said that it did not seem like the message got through. “They didn’t seem like they really listened,” Davis said. The students plan to hold a sit in this afternoon at 12 p.m. in the Ohio Union located on 1739 N. High Street.
