About 120 members of the Antioch College and village community joined a Hands Up Walk Out on Monday to commemorate the funeral of Michael Brown, who was killed by police in Ferguson, Mo., on Aug. 9. The event, organized by a group of Antioch students including Eric Rhodes, was held in conjunction with dozens of other walkouts held at other campuses across the country on what would have been Brown’s first day of college. Community members read aloud the names of 32 other black citizens who had been killed by police, including John Crawford, who was shot by police in a Wal-Mart in Beavercreek on Aug. 5. Demonstrators urged the community to stay engaged in local issues of violent injustice by attending several upcoming demonstrations in Dayton and Beavercreek.
