There’s a new exhibit in Carolina Hall that explores some of the difficult truths about the university’s history, especially some of its buildings. Carolina Hall was formerly named Saunders Hall, after William L. Saunders, a former trustee and leader of the Ku Klux Klan.
When the Board of Trustees agreed to rename the building, they also created the “Chancellor’s Task Force on UNC History,” a group devoted to studying the University’s roots. Their first project, the creation of the new exhibit.
James Leloudis and Cecilia Moore are members of this task force and on Thursday, they gave Jessa O’Connor a tour of the exhibit.
