Hampshire College Draws Protests Over Removal of U.S. Flag
“If it was a political act, it was pretty craven and ineffective since people did it in secret and no one knows what it was meant to state,” Hampshire college’s president, Jonathan Lash, 71, said in a phone interview on Monday. “And we replaced the flag the next day.”
