Atlanta students protest for better housing and more funding for HBCUs

Several dozen students from Atlanta’s historically Black colleges and universities began a protest Monday afternoon demanding improved student housing from administrators and that congressional elected officials from Georgia provide more funding for the schools and student loan debt relief.

The students began the protest outside Rush Memorial Congregational Church at the Atlanta University Center, where HBCU students organized demonstrations in 1960. The students said they will not leave until their demands are met by presidents of the schools and addressed by federal officials.
