AKAs At American University Threatened With Bananas Hanging From Nooses
03 May 2017
I regret this happened, apologize to everyone offended, and state emphatically that this incident does not reflect what American University truly is. While this incident targeted AU’s chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, and occurred after the first black woman and AKA member was sworn in as the Student Government president—our entire university community has been adversely affected by this cowardly, despicable act.This comes less than a year after another African-American woman said that she had a banana thrown at her, as well as another rotten banana left at her dorm room door which also had obscene language written on it. The hanging bananas are being treated as a hate crime. Photo: Youtube Screenshot
