Eastern Michigan University Administration And Campus Police Respond To Racist Graffiti At EMU

Sep 20, 2016

Eastern Michigan University continues to investigate racist graffiti that was discovered on a wall at King Hall on the school's campus at Tuesday morning.

I spoke with EMU's Vice President of Communications Walter Kraft, Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Calvin Phillips, and Police Chief Bob Heighes in a live, in-studio interview on Tuesday afternoon about what happened.

Several student protests also took place on campus throughout the day in response to the graffiti.

Around 200 students gathered on campus in front of Welch Hall to protest.
