Black Lives Matter Banner Vandalized on the Campus of Susquehanna University

A Black Lives Matter banner hanging on the outside wall of the Degenstein Campus Center on the campus of Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, was vandalized.

Campus police identified the person responsible for the vandalism. He was a Pennsylvania State University student who was visiting friends at Susquehanna. The student admitted to being intoxicated when the vandalism occurred.

Susquehanna President Jonathan D. Green condemned the vandalism saying the “hateful act violates our university values and is hurtful to everyone, and especially to our students, colleagues, neighbors, and friends within the Black community. The timing of this targeted destruction follows recent social-media commentary opposing our principled efforts to foster an inclusive and welcoming community.”
