The portraits of all the Black professors at Harvard Law were covered with black tape just a day after students rallied and marched on campus in support of Black student activists around the country.
It was enough to make a cowardly racist react.
Reports Think Progress:
Photos taken by Harvard PhD candidate Clint Smith show the portraits of tenured African American law professors, which are displayed in the law school’s main building, marked by black slashes of tape across their faces.
Leland Shelton, the president of the Black Law Students Association, told ThinkProgress that he viewed the incident as a hostile action. It “wasn’t done by an ally. It wasn’t in support of black students and black professors,” Shelton said.
Shelton began receiving text messages from concerned students about 8:30 on Thursday morning.
