A collection of tweets, photos and other coverage from the Feb. 9-10, 2019, event honoring the black Duke alumni who took over the Allen Building, the university's main administrative building, in 1969. Nearly 30 of the original protesters returned to campus to reflect, reunite, and check on the status of the demands they issued fifty years ago.
