Students gather outside Blaustein for divestment rally

Description

Visual Description: About 150 students and faculty members protested on the front steps of Blaustein demanding total divestment from South Africa as the Board of Trustees met to discuss the issue inside. The rally took place on Friday May 6, 1988. Students use umbrellas to protect themselves from the rain. A student in the middle speaks into a microphone to the members of the crowd who look to her. Backs of students heads are in the foreground while other students line both sides of the stairs and stand behind the speaker.
