A racial slur spray-painted inside the West Virginia State University Capital Center Theater is being investigated by federal authorities.
West Virginia State is a historically black university. It acquired the downtown Charleston theater in the 1990s. It is now home to several classrooms. It also is the venue for student performances and the West Virginia International Film Festival.
