WATCH LIVE: Howard #BlackburnTakeover students' presser addressing protests, housing concerns, the university's refusal to talk | #BlackStarNetwork
Media advisory from #BlackburnTakeover Student Advocates:
On Sunday, students reached out to the Board to come to the table after the University asked them to provide the name of their lawyer. Students and their attorney met with the University's lawyer and provost. After the students explained their frustration and fight for University accountability and spelled out their demands, they were told that Dr. Frederick and his administration would not even discuss their demands until they shut their protest down. He would not discuss meeting with them, giving them amnesty, or their housing concerns. This press conference will give updates on the negotiations process. We will also discuss HUSA’s most recent updates about the student positions on the Board of Trustees. Rev. Jesse Jackson has expressed his unwavering support of student protestors and has met with President Frederick on Wednesday.
