With combined efforts from the group Concerned Student 1950, grad student Jonathan Butler’s hunger strike, and the Mizzou football team, the tensions on University of Missouri’s campus were brought to national headline news with many people taking to social media to voice their concerns around the problem. While some students, including those at Yale University and Ithaca College, started their own protest to fight back against racial discrimination on their campus, many college students across the nation pledged to wear all black on Thursday in solidarity with Mizzou.

Other supporters of the students showed their concerns for the issue by sharing their personal story of campus discrimination on Twitter using the hashtag #BlackOnCampus.
