PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Students at Brown University and Providence College have joined to protest racial discrimination on their Rhode Island campuses and to show support for students attending the University of Missouri.

The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1NQSD8h ) the protests began Thursday night and Friday morning as a show of support for black victims of racism on college campuses.

Some faculty members and administrators joined the protesting students at Brown, who spoke about their experiences with racism.

Providence College’s rally was organized by the school’s chapter of the NAACP and sought to show support for students discriminated against at so-called “PWIs” or Primarily White Institutions.

PC-NAACP President Vidale Lovett says Providence College students are protesting so “we don’t become a Mizzou.”
