Nebraska U’s black student leaders step up, address community need
In the days following George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis, feelings of anger and sadness pushed countless American citizens across the nation into the streets in protest.
At the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, black student leaders banded together to ensure change was enacted.
“It was time for us and our community members to finally demand changes and not allow people to tell us what those changes are,” said Batool Ibrahim, president of the Black Student Union.
