Three former San Jose State University students are currently on trial for hate crimes committed against an African-American freshman in 2013. They're accused of repeated physical and mental abuse, including fastening a bike lock around the victim's neck. As campuses across the nation struggle to respond to racist incidents, Forum, in a special "Forum on the Road" broadcast from SJSU, will discuss what the school has done to address racial issues in the wake of the 2013 incident, which sparked widespread anger and protests.
