“It’s been just a phenomenal experience,” Marvin Kelly, who traveled with the students, said. “It’s truly an amazing group.”
Kelly is an attorney with Northeastern University’s Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project, which collaborated on the investigation into Williams’ death and plans to continue the probe.
“The death certificate does list this, to this very day, as an accident and we want to correct the record for history and for the family to explore with them the prospects of what this family may need and what this community may need to feel as though some measure of justice has ultimately been brought to bear,” Kelly said.
