“I support the abolishment of the box at NYU and other institutions of higher education because education is not a privilege but a human right and should be treated as such.  Frederick Douglas stated that “Knowledge makes a man unfit to be a slave” and in a nation that prides itself as “the land of free” yet has more black men in prison than were ever enslaved, “knowledge is power” has never had a more astute meaning. Equal access to education is just the beginning.”
