Cole led in song as the group lapped the hall and was supported by some students thumping tables in time with the drumbeat, before she offered a short speech and exit. The peaceful demonstration was preceded by a panel discussion on Monday night at the campus and followed later Tuesday evening with a presentation by Cole at The Landing.
