On Feb. 25, 2016, a group of Harvard Law School students fighting for racial justice traveled to Brandeis University to voice their objections to HLS Dean Martha Minow, for her inaction and condescension on racial-justice issues. Using raw video of the event, a couple of us have created this video because we feel our Brandeis protest has been mischaracterized by the HLS administration, and in the media -- just as the Apr. 4 protest against federal housing finance director Mel Watt, done in conjunction with City Life/Vida Urbana, has been mischaracterized.
To correct the record, City Life/Vida Urbana recently posted video of the Apr. 4 protest, here: facebook.com/citylifeboston/videos/10154107103419161
Our video likewise corrects the record regarding our Feb. 25 protest against Dean Minow at Brandeis. Our protest was forceful, but respectful and concise, and closely tied to current events at HLS bearing on the subject of Dean Minow's speech -- and much calmer than many protests on college campuses during the past several decades dealing with much less important matters.
