Reported to Police for Walking While Black

“Last month, I walked across the campus of the University of Massachusetts Amherst to get to work. It was an ordinary stroll. But to a bystander, the sight of an educated Black professional going about his day was apparently cause for alarm. That bystander called the police. My workplace was shut down. I was, and remain, humiliated.” Hear from Reginald Andrade and his experience with constantly being racially profiled while working for a predominantly white institution. ACLU piece here.
