Just days ago, UNC faculty voted to condemn the Board of Governors’ decision to give $2.5 million to a Confederate hate group for keeping the Silent Sam statue. The statue was removed last Spring after students and other university supporters protested it’s on-campus presence. The statue, erected in 1913 by a former UNC trustee as he whipped a Black woman for insulting it, will now be housed at the Sons of Confederate Veterans headquarters. The university’s gift of $2.5 million will fund the headquarters for a group whose mission is heavily invested in a return to slavery. With growing university support, we can demand the Board of Governors to stop funding Confederate hate.
