A convicted felon was chosen to speak on a panel titled “Ella Baker Day” at Manhattanville College in the upscale suburbs of New York City on April 13th. When a fellow student asked about the crimes the panelist was convicted of, he was berated by a fellow student for “embarrassing” her.
From The Daily Caller:
Convicted felon Donna Hylton spoke on a civil rights panel at a fancypants college earlier this month but completely failed to mention that she — along with several others — kidnapped a man, forcibly sodomized him with a steel pole and then tortured him to death…
In 1985, Hylton along with three men and three other women, kidnapped 62-year-old real-estate broker Thomas Vigliarolo and held him for ransom before eventually killing him. Hylton and her comrades starved, burned and tortured Vigliarolo. They forcibly sodomized him with a 3-foot steel pole.
A student at the event claimed that Hylton had made it seem like she was an “innocent victim” who was jailed solely for the color of her skin, and not the crimes she was convicted of.
