Students march silently in protest of racist acts at Penn State
October 21, 2000
About 300 students, dressed in black, marched silently in protest of racist acts at Penn State.
Earlier in the month, threatening hate mail had been sent to three students (including Black Caucus President LaKeisha Wolf and an African American football player) and an African American University trustee.
A list of hateful acts, from stones thrown at black women to swastika vandalism in dorms, was regarded by many as a sign of problems with the climate at Penn State.
