ALABAMA STUDENTS HOST ‘DIE-IN’ AT FERGUSON STUDENT CENTER

Tuesday afternoon, University of Alabama students lined the halls of the Ferguson Student Center with one goal: Giving minority groups a voice.

The die-in represented the exhaustion students said they have with not feeling welcomed on campus.

Senior Semaj’ Davis said they just want to be heard.

“This is not an organization here,” Davis said. “This is just a group of concerned students. We are actually people who are in several different organizations, but we let that go because we are a bunch of concerned students at the end of the day.”

Students said they believe the lack of listening is an issue for all marginalized students at the university.

“People from low social economic backgrounds, people who are from the LGBTQ community, minority groups don’t have anything that speaks for them,” said Davis.

These students will continue to speak up until their voices are heard and change is made.
