UNC’s Commission on History, Race and a Way Forward welcomed four new student members and heard from the University of Virginia President's Commission on the University in the Age of Segregation at its third meeting Friday.
The commission also discussed the future of the Unsung Founders Memorial in light of the COVID-19 pandemic at the meeting, held virtually over Zoom and livestreamed on YouTube.
Co-chairperson Patricia Parker began by introducing the commission's new student members: graduate students Ariana Avila and Danita Horton and undergraduate students Sydni Janell Walker and Graham Watkins.
Jim Leloudis, chairperson and a professor in the history department at UNC, asked the guests from UVA to share thoughts and advice for staging a large multi-year project similar to the one the commission is currently undertaking.
