Earlier this month black students at the University of Guelph peacefully protested racism on their campus. They marched across the school and later met with the vice president of academics and the associate vice president of student affairs in their offices.

During the meeting students read a list of demands and talked about the racism and marginalization they encounter daily on campus.
