During a student forum held Thursday at the University of Maryland, Black Lives Matter advocates argued that activism should be taught in the classroom to make it more “convenient” for students to “stand up for racial justice.”

The “Baltimore to Byrd” event, hosted by the student organization Maryland Discourse, featured a panel consisting of two students, Rhys Hall and Christine Hagan, as well as Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Vice President Kumea Shorter-Gooden and College Park City Councilor Robert Day.
