Kansas State to suspend classes for a campus-wide anti-racism rally

MANHATTAN — Kansas State is suspending classes for a campus-wide rally against racism after a series of incidents.

The Wichita Eagle
reports that University President Richard Myers made the announcement Wednesday night. He says students, faculty and staff will walk in unison from 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14, from classrooms and offices to the lawn in front of the central administration building, which is called Anderson Hall. Myers plans to provide a “message of unity” and outline steps to “move our campus and community forward.”

The student body president and Black Student Union president will be co-hosts.

A noose and racist flyers have been found on campus in recent months. A 21-year-old black man defaced his own car with racist graffiti in what he described as a Halloween prank that got out of hand.
