Haraya, the Pan-African Student Coalition, invited students to wear all black and stand in solidarity against police brutality, white supremacy and gun violence last Thursday, Sept. 7 on the Great Lawn for their annual peace vigil.

The ceremony allowed students to perform spoken word and share poems regarding the topics and also included a speech from a new minister at St. John’s, Ansel Augustine. The vigil ended with a candle lit ceremony and prayer.

Tunde Aladetohun, chair of finance and membership of Haraya, said, “The purpose of the peace vigil was to uplift the SJU community, to spread awareness.”

He added that “it was very enlightening and brought us together, it really emphasized that black is beautiful and encourages everyone to go further in life.”
