The current students at the historic Howard University are protesting and standing up for better living conditions at Howard. The students are demanding that things change and want the staff at Howard to meet with them.
Students are demanding that the leadership at the university listen to their needs and work to get things resolved. The students have voiced their frustration about the living conditions, but nothing was communicated about fixing those issues.
So now, the students have taken over the Blackburn University Center with their demands. The students are protesting for the leadership to fix some of the dorms on campus. Some of the dorms have mold in them, and they also have poor ventilation that needs to be fixed.
Also, students are frustrated with the tuition increase and the lack of dorms for juniors and seniors. The students have been voicing their concerns since school has started and still are waiting on answers.
When students asked for a sit down with administrators to discuss these issues, their request was denied, and the police showed up. Which only escalated their anger and made them more determined during the protest.
Students have seen the reports and articles of corporate companies and celebrities giving large donations to Howard. So it has the students wondering why there is a disconnect between the housing issues and the money the school has received.
The students are fighting to be heard by leaders at Howard, and students are standing firm with their demands. Because from one of the banners used at the protest, the students feel that “Enough is Enough.”
