Senior political science major and Student Government president Olaniyi Solebo spoke at the tearing down of ‘Writings on the Wall’ on Friday, April 6 outside the Brower Student Center.
Students wrote discriminatory words and phrases that they have been called on the wall. A hoodie and a bag of Skittles were also hung on the wall to symbolize the alleged racial profiling of Trayvon Martin.
The wall was torn down during a ceremony, and students were given pieces of the wall to keep.
