UNC geography professor Altha Cravey reads aloud a statement in support of the poverty center at the UNC-system Board of Governors meeting on Friday, Feb. 27 in Charlotte. The board voted unanimously to shut down three centers.
More than 1,000 people turned out at the N.C. General Assembly for the fifth "Moral Monday" protest earlier this week. The pre-protest rally took place in the late afternoon on the lawn behind the legislative building.
While the arrests occurred inside the building, supporters continued to rally, chant and hold up signs on Salisbury Street.
