NewsOne: Rally At North Carolina’s General Assembly To Push Back Against SB873

The fight continues against the North Carolina bill that will essentially gut three historically Black universities.

Proposed bill SB-873 would lower the tuition at five universities to the point that they will no longer be self-sufficient.

The Million Hoodies Movement for Justice Greensboro chapter has organized a “Week of Action Against SB-873,” with protests scheduled to begin on Wednesday in an attempt to push back against what some believe will be the end of several HBCUs if the controversial legislation is passed.

Delaney Vandergrift, Chapter Leader of the Million Hoodies Movement in Greensboro, joined Roland Martin during Wednesday’s edition of NewsOne Now to discuss SB-873 and the protest action scheduled for today.
