Several college students from a number of HBCUs in Atlanta arrived in Ferguson, Mo. on March 8 to register voters in time for the April 7 deadline. Teamed with the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP, students knocked on doors in and around Ferguson throughout the weekend to canvass voters and disseminate information. Many of the students gave up days of their spring break to participate.
