GREENSBORO –Guilford College students held signs, sang chants and shared stories of racial injustice at a walk-out on Thursday.

“As a result of what’s been happening in Missouri, we felt it was important to show solidarity as a campus,” Najha Zigbi-Johnson, a student who organized the protest, said. “But we also wanted to address Guilford-specific issues.”

The 200 students who participated in the protest at Guilford College presented the administration with a list of 12 demands, aimed to gain better treatment for black students.

Some of the demands included adding a larger percentage of black faculty, starting diversity training for students and faculty and working to recruit and retain black students.
