Marist College Band and the Inauguration

It was learned several days ago that, the Marist College band had accepted its invitation to participate in the inauguration of Donald Trump, on January 20. Yesterday, WAMC reported about a petition, initiated by a 2003 Marist College graduate and former band member, urging the band to decline its invitation, alleging that "Trump's history of racism, bigotry, and sexism does not reflect Marist College values." The story wasn't made available online until last evening, twelve hours after it was first aired, but if you missed it yesterday, you can hear it now: "Petition Asks Marist Band to Bow Out of Inauguration Performance."
