Remember how in the 60’s Black college students in Greensboro staged a sit-down strike at the lunch counter against  F.W. Woolworth?

That sense of pride is still being upheld on historically Black college campus across the country!

The students of Prairie View A&M filed a lawsuit against Waller County over alleged voter suppression.

The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund filed a lawsuit Monday on behalf of students at the HBCU who said there were no early voting sites in Prairie View this week.

In the suit, students called for the days and hours of early voting in Prairie View to be expanded, including the opportunity to vote this weekend.

Waller county responded by adding early voting Sunday at an off-campus site and extending next week’s hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Previously, the hours were 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The lawsuit, however, is still pending.
