Notes

"The affair, which started about 11:30 a.m. along Highland Street near Willis Library, was mostly peaceful. More than a dozen UNT and Denton police officers were on hand but didn't arrest or detain anyone in the area, according to university officials. Some conversations among students and preachers became heated, but the crowd slowly dissipated after three or four hours." - Julian Gill, "'Street preachers' with controversial signs draw large crowd on UNT campus," Denton Record-Chronicle, March 29, 2018.
