On February 26, a blog post titled “Refusing to Be Broken: Hartwick College Criminalizes Black Female Self-Defense against Racist White Male Assaults”, was published on AbolitionJournal.com detailing allegations made during an ongoing student conduct process at Hartwick College. The post describes four black female students as charged with “harm to persons”, “after they protected themselves during a violent attack by white student athletes,” wrote the article writer, and older sister of two of the black female students, Jallicia Jolly.
