This week, the UNC community is mourning the loss of Associate Professor Perry Hall. Hall was on UNC’s faculty for almost 30 years and was a scholar in African, African American and Diaspora Studies. His most popular class was The History of Hip Hop Culture.
Taylor Tyson, one of Hall’s students, talks about his impact and the legacy he leaves behind.
Dr. Perry Hall was outstanding as a Professor and as a liason for the black and white student communities. I learned of his passing recently, and would like to be alerted if there is a public memorial service planned for the future. His loss is significant, both for UNC and for all those with the good fortune to have met him.
