THE General Body supported the Monday afternoon protest, the third in one week.

Standing outside Hendricks Chapel on Monday afternoon, a group of protesters unfurled a big black banner. In white letters, their banner read, “This stops today.” The names of black victims in highly publicized police encounters were printed below. Among these was Michael Brown, the 18-year-old shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, in August, and Eric Garner, who died in Staten Island, N.Y., in July after a police officer put him in a chokehold.
