Morehouse College bans media after Ferguson grand jury decision

Morehouse College has announced a gathering following the Ferguson grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson, but the media isn't allowed to cover it.

A post-announcement rally was announced on Twitter for the historically black all-male private school located south of downtown, but reporters are banned.

“Students are gathered in order to have an opportunity to react together. Privately,” said Morehouse spokeswoman Elise Durham.
