In this two-part investigative report, Vermont Public Radio examines the circumstances surrounding the suspension of an African-American senior on allegations he intruded into other student rooms at Middlebury College. The senior sued the college to get his diploma and said that race was involved in his suspension. A Vermont court later ruled in favor of the college.
