Middle School students holding the Pan-African flag standing in the center of a man-made circle formed by their peers.
“We want [to be] a school, not a business!” shouted students, as they stood near the flagpole in the middle of Howard University’s yard.
Students from the Middle School of Mathematics and Science–also known as (MS)²–decided to stage a walkout which eventually led them to demonstrate on the yard of Howard University. Students started walking out at approximately 11 a.m. and proceeded to hold hands and form a circle; about 100 students were involved in this demonstration.
