- A Saturday night rap showcase slated to feature eight New Haven and Yale rappers at the Afro-American Cultural Center was cancelled after the Yale Police Department expressed security concerns. The event was canceled Saturday morning after Rodney Cohen, assistant dean of Yale College and director of the Af-Am Center, emailed co-organizer Ifeanyi Awachie ’14 that “by order of the Yale police, tonight’s WYBC Radio Rap event is canceled.”
- Newly admitted applicants to the Yale College class of 2016 now have until May 1 to decide whether they will spend the next four years of their lives in New Haven. But even after the Elm City registered a 20-year high homicide count with 34 murders in 2011, thirteen applicants interviewed said the city’s crime rates did not influence their decision to apply to Yale and ultimately would not influence their decision to matriculate.
- On Saturday afternoon, Yalies and members of the New Haven community donned hoodies and marched the city’s streets to protest the fatal shooting of unarmed African-American teenager Trayvon Martin. The march, which was organized by the Black Student Alliance at Yale (BSAY) and co-sponsored by social justice groups from Yale, New Haven and the state of Connecticut, aimed to call attention to racial profiling and the need for unity among local groups taking steps to address it.
