For the first time in UNC’s history, the university has removed the names of two white supremacists from campus buildings and replaced them with the names of people of color. Friday, the former Aycock Residence Hall was renamed for Hortense McClinton, UNC’s first Black professor. The Carr Building will now be named for Henry Owl, an Indigenous student who was UNC’s first student of color.
