Protesters with Concerned Student 1950 say they’re tired with nothing being done about racial problems at Mizzou. The group met at the Black Culture Center on the Mizzou campus Monday, saying they want action, not presentations or talk.
One protester yelled out her support for former Mizzou professor Melissa Click. Click was dismissed from the school following her actions at two protests related to Mizzou in 2015.
The group tried to meet with interim chancellor Hank Foley, but got no response from his office.
At one point, filmmaker Spike Lee showed up at the protest and spoke to the crowds. There are reports from several he is at Mizzou to make a movie for ESPN’s “30 for 30” franchise. Lee apparently came to Columbia for the True/False film festival. One of the films at the festival was a short documentary about Concerned Student 1950.
