Dog walkers at Howard University infringe on ‘black Mecca’, students say

Gentrification has irritated yet another community of color. In Washington DC, students and alumni of Howard University are objecting to residents who walk their dogs on the campus, feeling these actions infringe on the campus and its history.

The university is historically black and affectionately referred to as one of the Black Meccas of American society. It was founded in 1867 and has been located in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington for the entirety of its 152-year history.
