Students At Southern Methodist University Rally Against Racial Discrimination
In Dallas, Texas, students at Southern Methodist University are among the college students across the U.S. rallying against racial discrimination. Yesterday, about 150 students gathered for a “blackout” to show support for black students at the University of Missouri and to call attention to racial issues on their own campus.
Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson talks to Christina Cox, editor-in-chief of SMU’s newspaper, the Daily Campus, about the atmosphere at SMU, and what’s prompting the rallies.
