Colton Jones kicked off the peaceful protest on the steps of Hendricks Chapel (Syracuse University).

We found out about last night’s march for social justice via social media (Thanks Dave Tobin). The multi-generational, multi-cultural group of peaceful (but vocal) protesters began their journey at Hendricks Chapel, marched through campus (with a brief pause at Bird Library), then despite the wind chill near 20 degrees, hopped on the Connective Corridor before hitting Harrison Street, and eventually occupying a portion of Downtown Syracuse.

In appreciation for the march and the movement, with end with an album that was recorded on this day during the height of the Civil Right Movement (see below).
