Black Lives Matter — Princeton University Student Protest & Die-in

On December 4, 2014, approximately 500 Princeton University students and members of the immediate community convened to “stand in the nation’s service and fight for justice by rejecting the culture of apathy and by reviving Princeton’s tradition of protest.” In the wake of the non-indictment of Darren Wilson and the officers involved in the death of Eric Garner, the event poster emphasized that the protest aimed to help “dismantle systemic injustices against marginalized people of color.”
