EARLHAM STUDENT GROUP DEMANDS 30% OF FACULTY AND STAFF BE BLACK

(Richmond, IN)--Classes were cancelled and most offices at Earlham College were closed Thursday after a group of students issued a claim that Earlham is not racially diverse enough.  That group has issued a series of nine demands to the Earlham administration.  Primarily, the group demands that at least 30% of the Earlham faculty and staff be black.  They also demand that 20% of the board be black.  The group claims "the campus is unsuitable for students of color to thrive."  The letter does not say what will happen if the demands are not met.
