This past Sunday, December 7, students, faulty, and members of the Gambier and Mount Vernon communities held a rally in solidarity with protesters in Ferguson, MO. One group walked south from North Campus and one group walked north from South Campus; the marchers chanted “no justice no peace.” The groups met on Middle Path in front of the Village Inn where a number of the marchers gave speeches sharing their opinions on the recent racial tensions and their experiences with both privilege and racism. The rally was sponsored by  the Black Student Union, Discrimination Advisers, Sisterhood, Kenyon Democrats, Kenyon Students Against Gun Violence, and the Roosevelt Institute Chapter at Kenyon.
