“N*gger” Spray Painted on Lincoln University Sign

Vandals Spray-Paint “NIGGER” on Lincoln University Sign

Someone spray-painted the "n"-word on a sign at the entrance of Lincoln University overnight, according to a message sent to the university community Thursday morning. Public safety officers at the university in Chester County discovered the graffiti on its northwest corner entrance sign at 1:50 a.m., and the word was gone later Thursday morning, officials said.

Lincoln University, founded in 1854, was the nation's first historically Black college or university.
