Candlelight vigil for Tundun Lawani (video)

A candlelight vigil was held in honor of Tundun Lawani ’14 Monday, Oct. 28th starting from the Ford Center for the Fine Arts ending in Seymour Union. The service was accompanied by the Umoja Gospel Choir, who lead the string of people through the walk.

Tundun died a year ago from a hit-and-run accident along South Street. Candles were strewn along the area during the service, as friends and peers strive to keep the memory of Tundun alive.
