On July 16, the Board of Trustees decided on an official policy to rename buildings on UNC’s campus. This follows the BOT decision in June which rescinded its 16-year self imposed moratorium on renaming buildings. Host Evely Forte spoke to incoming Sports Editor Brian Keyes to understand what this policy means for UNC’s campus. Evely also spoke to Summer University Desk Editor Maydha Devarajan to break down the July 10, unanimous decision of the Commission on History, Race and a Way Forward to remove names with ties to white supremacy of four on-campus buildings. University desk writer Kate Carroll also shared her reporting regarding the various UNC departments that came together to begin the process of renaming Hamilton Hall as Pauli Murray Hall. Reporting by Kate Carroll, Maydha Devarajan and Brian Keyes. Episode co-edited and co-produced by Evely Forte and Meredith Radford.
