Crying, Screaming, Fainting: A look back at Lawnparties through the eyes of Black women | The Orange Table Ep. 8
In episode 8 of The Orange Table, co-hosts Omar Farah and Aishah Balogun sit down with Toru Obunge ’24 and Nica Evans ’24 to discuss their experiences at Lawnparties this October. Many people will remember that the event was unruly, but few really understand the extent of the brutality that a group of Black students say they faced at the front of that crowd. There is a lesson in this story for everyone in our community from how gender and race play into our experiences of public space, to the University's crowd control policies, to our values as a social community.
