Southern University students plan to head to the capitol Monday

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Southern University College Democrats prepared for their rally at the capitol Sunday.

After not being notified about the bill, the group gathered and made signs and posters to protest House Bill 927. The bill proposes a merger of the university's current system with University of Louisiana's (UL) system.

The group of young democrats fear the passing of this piece of legislation will eliminate its historical black college system.
