On one September night, two separate black students at American University reported racially-charged incidents involving bananas in Anderson dormitory. The school responded by opening an investigation of each incident and by hosting a community conversation earlier this week. While the university’s president denounced the events, students led by the Black Students Association have posted – both online and on campus – messages revealing what they believe to be “the real A.U.” A sophomore at American University joins Kojo to discuss the events, the university’s response and what students expect moving forward.
