A Football Team Revolt at Grambling

Members of Grambling State University’s football team, protesting conditions of the school, boycotted a game and complained about budget cuts that have hurt the entire university. The boycott resulted in the cancellation of a game against Jackson State and focused national attention to the school’s conditions.
