Scenes from Red Square


Following the slim, but ever-so-real, victory of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, members of the Clark community gathered in Red Square on Wednesday, Nov. 9 to express their thoughts and emotions. The crowd formed a circle, at the middle of which various students took the megaphone to give speeches, read poems, and share songs.  An emotional display of grief and healing, the afternoon drew tears from the speakers and the audience.  Over the course of two hours, numerous individuals spoke on a variety of issues and concerns, ranging from racial inequality to sexual assault.
