Students honored after mobbing prof in costume controversy

(CAMPUS REFORM) — Two of the students who angrily mobbed a Yale University professor during a 2015 controversy over Halloween costumes have been given awards for “enhancing race and/or ethnic relations.”

Yale’s Nakashini Prize is awarded “to two graduating seniors who, while maintaining high academic achievement, have provided exemplary leadership in enhancing race and/or ethnic relations at Yale College,” according to the school’s website.

This year, the Nakanishi Prize was awarded to Alexandra Zina Barlowe and Abdul-Razak Mohammed Zachariah, both of whom were heavily involved in the activism surrounding Yale’s 2015 controversy over “offensive” Halloween costumes.
