Millennials Are Killing Capitalism

May 9, 2018

On March 29th over 300 students took over the Administration Building at Howard University. The occupation was in response to a list of demands they had drafted, but also spontaneously seized upon widespread student concern following both housing shortage and a financial aid scandal. After occupying all floors of the A-Building, students liberated the building, turning it into the Kwame Ture Student Center, a nod to a long unfulfilled promise of a student center on Howard’s campus. They held the space for nine days - the longest occupation in Howard University history - until the college’s board of trustees had agreed to address their demands to the satisfaction of the students. 
Today we have two organizers from HU Resist, the student group who led the occupation, Jason Ajiake and another student who has asked that her name be removed from the description for privacy reasons.
