The Quad Cities Times reports:
When the clock struck 12:15 p.m., a few students announced the time as people found their spot on the ground. Some sprawled out with their eyes wide open, while others kept them closed.
Logan Croll, 11, and his sister Miranda, 9, held up homemade signs instead of lying on the floor.
Logan and Miranda’s father, Paul Croll, is a sociology professor at Augustana College who has co-authored numerous academic articles and books addressing race and racism in America.
“We’ve been openly and honestly talking about race at the dinner table for weeks,” said Croll, who added he excused his two children from Riverdale Heights Elementary School in Bettendorf over the noon hour so they could attend the demonstration. “It was important to take them out for this.”
