Kent State students hold unity march amid investigation into racist graffiti


KENT, Ohio (WJW) — Student organizations at Kent State held a March for Unity on campus Monday afternoon. Masks were required.

The Alpha Phi Alpha Epsilon Delta chapter and Black United Students said they would be joined by University President Todd Diacon and Kent State University Police.

In late August, an iconic rock at KSU was vandalized multiple times with hateful and offensive messages aimed at the Black community.

The University said last week it is investigating actions including putting a fence around it, installing security cameras, or removing it. 

Black United Students sent a list of demands to Diacon on September 8 and expressed fears for their safety.

According to an updated release on Sept. 10, the organization said their demands had been “heard, openly received and are in the process of being executed.”
