ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Students at the University at Albany aren’t letting the controversy over an alleged attack divide the campus.

Three black female UAlbany students claimed they were the victims of a racially charged attack on a CDTA bus. However, sources told NEWS10 ABC that security video footage from the bus is damaging the young women’s accusations.

In the meantime, UAlbany students are trying to break down color walls and grow a unity wall. The glass wall was already on the university’s campus and is now being covered with purple and yellow thumbprints, which represent the school’s colors.

Students said they recognize people are affected by racial issues on different levels, but they hope the wall can be a small gesture to the students and surrounding community.
