California was admitted as a state as part of a deal between lawmakers representing slave and free states known as the Compromise of 1850. What I do hope is that all of the students interested in this campaign and the urgency around it will encourage more students to join in the broader work that we’re embarked upon. We want to highlight not just racial injustice at Rice, but also the work of students and community members to protest, to mobilize around concern about that history.

Denise Amber Lee Obituary, Does this activism coming from so many current students impact how you see the work of the task force playing out or place any urgency on making those suggestions?
