The students have a right to say what they want to say. I don’t have any issue. They were civil and unconfrontational. People should be proud of how Northwestern demonstrated itself in an unscripted format.”

“Students have a right to say what they want to say. I don’t have any issue with [the protests].”

According to SB Nation, The gathered demonstrators prepared a list of demands for Northwestern president Morton Schapiro. As president, many believe he is primarily responsible for creating a comfortable atmosphere for students of color at the university.

The protesters started their event at Northwestern’s African American student center, called the Black House, and marched north to the Henry Crown Sports Pavilion.
