Students, faculty and alumni from Howard University showed support to those participating in the Occupy Wall Street-style protests Friday by marching in their own demonstration.

Protesters planned to gather Friday evening on the Howard campus, then march to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on H Street to join two other rallies.

Organizers of Friday’s march said the goal is to bring more racial diversity to the protests.

They believe the issues raised by these demonstrations should resonate with area African-Americans, who experience unemployment and poverty in greater percentages than others.
