TSU Student Leaders Organize Prayer Service For Injured Peer

Tennessee State University student leaders organized a noontime April 7 prayer service for peer Blake Nathan, who is in stable condition and is recovering from a near-fatal April 6 shooting at the Atlantis entertainment venue in downtown Nashville. Nathan was hosting a campaign party during his bid for SGA Vice President.

The vigil and prayer hour convened in the Laura M. Averitte Amphitheater on the main campus. Danny Glover, a senior history major from Macon, Ga. and SGA president candidate, presided over the hour-long gathering.

Glover addresses the gathering of more than 200 students.

 Min. Darryl Taliaferro, college ministry director for the Mount Zion Baptist Church,
delivers words of encouragement to students before leading them all in prayer.

Students raised clasped hands during the singing of the University's Alma Mater.
