On Wednesday, April 8th, the Campus Y Cabinet (leaders of the 31 committees in the Campus Y) voted overwhelmingly to support the Real Silent Sam Coalition in the renaming of Saunders Hall and the contextualization of the building. As a collection of students who stand for social justice, issues such as the renaming of Saunders Hall bring the Campus Y’s efforts and values close to home. We believe it is important for us to stand behind the Real Silent Sam Coalition in their efforts to dismantle the racist and oppressive history that manifests in the physical spaces of our campus.

At its next meeting, Student Congress will consider creating a special committee to help Congress determine its stance on renaming Saunders Hall.

Only four members of the rules and judiciary committee were present Tuesday night to hear speaker David Joyner present the proposal for the select committee on Saunders.

“Student Congress doesn’t have the authority to rename Saunders Hall, but we do have the power to take a stance on the issue,” he said.

On the 150th anniversary of Gen. Robert E. Lee’s surrender to Union forces at the Battle of Appomattox — a symbolic end to the Civil War — students and faculty recognize that racial tensions and discussions of equality have yet to cease fire.

“It’s so central to the preservation and strengthening of the nation as a whole and raised issues that we still have not completely resolved today,” said William Barney, a UNC history professor who’s an expert on the antebellum South.

The themes have arisen nationwide and across UNC’s campus in recent months — namely race relations and whether to recontextualize history.
