Students have initiated an Allen Building sit-in until their demands are met.

Approximately a month after The Chronicle reported that Executive Vice President Tallman Trask hit contract parking attendant Shelvia Underwood with his car and was accused of using a racial slur as he drove off Aug. 30, 2014, students have demanded that Trask resign and started a sit-in in the Allen Building. The start of the sit-in came after a protest focused on demands for administration regarding the Trask incident and treatment of employees at Duke. See below for our live Twitter coverage of the protest and start of the sit-in:
