Oxford Vigils
In remembrance of those who lost their lives in last week’s tragedies and in sympathy with their families and friends, vigils were held at the Freedom Summer Memorial beside Kumler Chapel and in uptown Oxford.  Classes were canceled on Friday as thousands of students and community members gathered in the basketball arena to view the broadcast from the National Cathedral.
