Hundreds of Missouri State University students, accompanied by many administrators and other school employees, took a vocal stand against hate Monday evening.

The half hour event, which remained peaceful throughout, featured comments from student leaders and university officials, including those who grew up during the Civil Rights Movement.

The Stand with Charlottesville Rally was organized by Britt Spears, president of the MSU Chapter of the NAACP.
