NIU Also Affected By City's Crime, Says Student Who Invited Cross Builder


CHICAGO — A student who invited the man behind the controversial crosses of Englewood to Northern Illinois University for a prayer vigil Friday said he did so because many students are impacted by the city’s violence.

The crosses, which mark each murder in the city in 2017, were moved from a lot in the 5500 block of South Bishop Street and taken to NIU earlier this week.
