Richard Spencer’s Visit

On December 6, 2016, white supremacist Richard Spencer came to the A&M campus in College Station for a talk at the Memorial Students Center. A&M leadership, students, faculty, and staff, and other members of the local community organized various activities (see image below) to oppose Spencer’s views. I invited six other colleagues to document those events using cell phones and portable sound recorders. Below you can access the audio and visual recordings by person/recordist or media (sounds, photos, and videos).
