UNT student petition stirs up memories of UNC's Saunders Hall

Students at the University of North Texas are petitioning to have a new building named after a woman or a person of color.

This controversy is reminiscent of the situation on UNC's campus during the 2015 renaming of Saunders Hall to Carolina Hall.
