Black lives matter.

This was the message of a small group of Wabash College students, faculty, staff and other volunteers Wednesday afternoon in front of the Montgomery County Courthouse. The message has been resounding across the nation. The way that this group sent its message, however, was a bit different from the lectures that are typically found on a college campus.

Three students and four adult volunteers stood holding signs. Another student stood with a megaphone, repeating a series of maxims. The other participants lay scattered on the ground around the feet of those standing, representing the innocent black men killed while in police custody.

“Today, we are peacefully protesting structural injustice, in this case, the injustice happens to focus around some recent events with black men suspiciously dying in the hands of law enforcement,” Wabash Associate Director of Admissions Kim King II said. “To be sure, that’s a very important matter to us.”
