Students Organize 'Die-In' Protests at Dining Halls

Earlier this week, three all-Black student ‘die-ins’ were organized at Pomona College’s and Pitzer College’s dining halls. According to the protesters, the die-ins were a response to institutional violence committed against the Black community as a whole, sparked by recent grand jury decisions to not indict white police officers who killed Michael Brown and Eric Garner in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, respectively.
