DCFerguson Supports #WhiteCoats4BlackLives

Around the world today, a National White Coat Die-In took place where med students across the country had die-ins at the same time. Howard University, in Washington DC, was the first HBCU to sign up for the action. Click here for several pictures from their die-in at the Louis Stokes Health Sciences Library (one of several locations they hit today) and get organized.
