The White People of Mizzou

This was in Peace Park, historically a gathering point for student protests in the 60s & named as such during that time. Speaker’s circle is the main spot on campus known for exercising free speech, but this spot allowed for students to assemble peacefully. Not sure if the space was used in recent protests, but it is interesting that this conversation (which illustrates so well the disconnect between white students’ conception of the day to day experiences of black students, fear of speaking out, ignorance, etc.) took place in an area historically designated for communal social justice.
