  • Winthrop students in Rock Hill feel sadness, rage over shootings

    After marching to Tillman Hall in the September 2016 file video, Winthrop University students in Rock Hill said they are sad, fearful and "full of rage" over recent police shootings of black men, and said they want the current climate of police brutality to change. The students chanted "black lives matter" and "no justice, no peace." During tearful discussions, a man challenged the students and said they need to protest in Charlotte, stating "all lives matter, not just black lives."
