Several hundred Atlanta University Center students gathered at Morehouse College’s Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel to protest yesterday’s decision not to pursue criminal charges against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown. The students began by linking arms around a statue of King.
“This day we are loving our enemies,” said Devon Crawford, a Morehouse senior and a lead organizer. “We are loving the hell out of our enemies.”
The AUC consists of four private historically black colleges — Spelman College, Morehouse College, Clark Atlanta University and Morris-Brown College — that share a university complex south of downtown.
