A crowd of undergraduates, law students and faculty members marched from Canaan Green to the Colonnade March 23 to protest the university’s name. 

“We are named after two slave owners; those people have earned their places in our history books but not on the name of our school,” Skyler Zunk, a law student, said. 

The gathering was organized in response to the Board of Trustees’ postponement of making a decision about renaming Washington and Lee. Students were encouraged to walk out of class in protest to attend the event.
