This spring, a case involving police brutality came to Norfolk State's front porch when student London Colvin was attacked by a police canine after refusing to give any information about a fight she had no involvement in. She missed class for months as her friends seemed to struggle for steadfast support from the student body. Again, there were panel discussions and forums. We briefly discussed it in class and there were a fair share of posts about it on social media. Her friends organized a march but it was overshadowed, ironically enough, by a forum featuring attorneys Benjamin L. Crump, Natalie A. Jackson, and Daryl D. Parks, who represented Trayvon Martin's family after he was killed. I wished I had more of a voice on campus and I realized more and more that being reclusive isn't a good thing. As the semester went on and I thought about how things played out at my university, the pessimist in me knew something major was going to happen back home; I just didn't know when.
