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.

  1. 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.
