A memorial to Harvard’s slain students opens in Los Angeles

A memorial honoring slain Harvard students has opened in Los Angels, California.

The event, which was organized by the UCLA Memorial Association, is scheduled for Friday.

According to the UCLA Association, the memorial will include a plaque honoring the students and their families, and the dedication of a wall commemorating the victims and their memory. 

Harvard University in the 1960s has been a hotbed for protests and unrest, especially after the school’s president, Lawrence Summers, made insensitive remarks about the Asian American community during his presidential campaign in 2012.
