MSU, White Supremacist Spencer Make Deal To Allow Speech

Jan 18, 2018

The Detroit Free Press reports that white supremacist Richard Spencer will speak at Michigan State University after all.

MSU had earlier denied a request to rent space to Spencer. This agreement follows the filing of a lawsuit by attorney Kyle Bristow.

Under the deal, Spencer will speak in the auditorium of the MSU Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education on March 5th. That's the first day of MSU's spring break.

Spencer is paying $1,650 for the event. Terms include a two-hour speech, with security provided by the university. A ticketing process will be established to control entry.

Spencer will pay for insurance, and his group will not hold other gatherings on campus.
