HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - The president of Dartmouth College has condemned reports of aggressive behavior during a Black Lives Matter protest earlier this month.

A crowd of students marched through Baker-Berry Library on Nov. 12, where demonstrators allegedly confronted other students who were studying with racially charged language. The protest occurred after a large demonstration by Dartmouth and Upper Valley residents.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1IcRv8M ) Dartmouth president Phil Hanlon called the community demonstration a “powerful expression of unity in support of social justice.”

But he says he can’t say the same about the library protest after hearing reports of vulgar epithets and intimidating actions used by students who entered the library and those who were already there.

Hanlon says administrators are investigating reports of violations of college policy and will enforce appropriate sanctions.
