The most recent attack, severe vandalism to Woods’ truck, which he received for graduation just last summer, occurred the night before the election night protests.
These recent racial issues have caught the attention of Rev. Dwight Montgomery, The President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, a Memphis based Civil Rights organization. Upon hearing of Woods’ story, Montgomery is demanding a meeting with University leaders to not only discuss Woods’ case, but also the larger race problem at Ole Miss.
The University has made several moves to heal race relations since the Election Night Protest and Woods’ story has gone public; they have sponsored a Candlelight Walk and a town-hall meeting addressing how to move forward.
