Unheard is an alliance of Black students organized for change within campus administration and atmosphere.

Students gathered on the University of Oklahoma campus Monday morning to protest the racist behavior of Sigma Alpha Epsilon members over the weekend.

Photos posted online show dozens of students gathered, joined by university president David Boren, who condemned the students in SAE.

"You are disgraceful... Real Sooners are not bigots, real Sooners are not racist," Boren said, according to the Oklahoman newspaper.

SAE's national headquarters closed the OU chapter Sunday after video surfaced of members singing, "There will be never be a ni**** in SAE." The university announced Monday morning it too would sever ties with the fraternity.

Students planned to gather Monday at 7:30 a.m. local time to protest SAE's actions. A group of student athletes reportedly formed a circle and were led in prayer by Sooners football center Ty Darlington.
