NAACP Host Troy Davis Vigil

 By: Regan Farley

 Troy Davis, 42, of Savannah, Ga. was convicted in 1989 for the murder of a Georgia Police Official.  Davis’  case  attracted national attention when seven out of nine witnesses recanted their statements as well of the lack of physical evidence on  behalf of the state of Georgia.  Today the Lincoln University Chapter of the NAACP is set to host a candlelight vigil in honor of Davis in the Mary Dod Brown Memorial Chapel at 7p.m., during the time that Davis is scheduled to be executed. Students are encouraged to wear black attire.
