Dozens of students staged a sit-in protest on the campus of Eastern Michigan University overnight. 

Several students live-streamed the protest which took place at the EMU Student Center on 900 Oakwood Street in Ypsilanti. 

The protest comes after recent acts of racist vandalism have appeared on campus.

A rally is scheduled for later this morning at Ford Hall at 11 a.m. with faculty expected to show up in support of black students and colleagues.
