    Harvard Students Protest Non-Indictments

    (Published Friday, Dec. 12, 2014)

    Demonstrations against racial inequality continued as thousands gathered at Harvard University shortly after 5 p.m. Friday evening. The demonstration was billed as the "March on Harvard."

    Friday's protest comes as the latest and largest in a series that has taken place at the school in recent weeks. According to Facebook, more than 1,700 people planned on attending.

    The decisions of two separate grand juries not to indict the white police officers who were involved in the killings of unarmed black men has sparked the demonstrations.

    Similar demonstrations have been held at various colleges and universities across the country, including Georgetown and Columbia.
