Truman State’s chapter of Amnesty International organized a candlelight vigil in honor of Michael Brown, shooting victim and Ferguson, Missouri, resident Aug. 25 at 8 p.m.
In addition to the vigil, the organization set up a table on The Quad from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the same day, and invited the Truman community to add their handprints to a banner that read “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.” According to the Truman Amnesty International chapter’s Facebook page, these events invited members of the community to stand in solidarity with the people of Ferguson, Missouri.

Last night The Quad was split in two by a river of quivering lights as candle-bearing students traversed Truman State’s campus as part of a silent vigil for Michael Brown. The Ferguson, Missouri, teen was shot and killed by a police officer Aug. 9, resulting in riots and unrest throughout Ferguson.
Truman’s Amnesty International chapter held the vigil in conjunction with Brown’s funeral this evening, and in light of the fact that the late teen had planned to begin attending Vatterott College today.

The Aquadome will spend the fall semester organizing house shows in local residences and events at local businesses after its former venue at 121 N. Main St. was condemned.
The Aquadome first notified the community of the venue change June 22. Aquadome Webmaster senior Jake Hurst says members of the Aquadome’s executive board first noticed insulation was coming down after a period of heavy rain. The problem was worsened by more rain throughout the following days, which Hurst says eventually led to the venue being condemned.
“We looked for a place to start up this fall but we couldn’t find anywhere that worked,” Hurst says. “So this semester we’re trying to hash out work with other businesses to see if we can have shows there. Basically, anywhere that we can [we’ll try to] have a house show, anywhere that will take us.”
Hurst says the search for a new venue will allow Aquadome volunteers to work in ways they have not thought of before. Hurst says rather than the Aquadome being a physical place, it has become an idea to build community and bring art to Kirksville. […]
