NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Dozens of Fisk university students walked out of class Wednesday in protest of the presidential election.
The demonstrators marched to the state’s capitol building and staged a sit-in at a major intersection, WSMV reported.
They later moved to an I-40 on ramp, blocking traffic to the freeway.

The protesters said they’re tired of discrimination, with shouts of “this is what community looks like.”
One student carried a sign that read “not my president.”
The student who organized the demonstration said the protest was not against the president-elect but what he stands for.
Demonstrators are calling on Trump to denounce statements he’s made that some have defined as discriminatory.
