Students, faculty and researchers at the medical school participated in a “die in” on Jan. 15 to protest police killings of unarmed black men. Clad in black “Black Lives Matter” T-shirts, demonstrators lay down on the medical school’s Discovery Walk while listening to Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The demonstration was organized by the Biomedical Association for the Interest of Minority Students.
