Racism Ignites College Protest

Lewis and Clark students call for more diversity

Lewis and Clark students and their Black Student Union are calling for more diversity on campus after a string of racist incidents. Despite bitter cold temperatures, around 200 Lewis and Clark College students showed up Friday morning for an on-campus sit-in. Organized by the Black Student Union, the event generated major support from the southwest Portland school’s mostly white students.
