Hanging Display in Graduate Housing at UCSD

2019-11-07

We at the NAACP San Diego Branch were deeply disturbed to hear that there was a display depicting a hanging person in Graduate Student housing at UC San Diego.

We call upon UCSD to take this incident very seriously.

The NAACP San Diego Branch is ready to assist the UCSD administration in responding to the incident, and making their campus more welcoming to African-Americans and other minorities.  This is especially important as UCSD looks to open a new facility in the East Village that it hopes will be of use to a diverse community.
