Deep-Rooted Grievances Prompt Sit-In at Howard U.: ‘We’ll Be Here as Long as It Takes’

Several hundred students have lined the halls of the Administration Building at Howard University for more than 24 hours, part of a sit-in aimed at forcing administrators at the prominent historically black institution to respond to a list of nine demands.

The sit-in followed news that six university employees were fired last year for pocketing money from university grants intended for needy students. It was only the latest in a series of scandals that have hit home for those struggling to make tuition payments.
