Happy Tuesday, UNC! While it may be time to head back to class after a three-day weekend, you can still make time to review news from campus and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day festivities:
QUOTABLE QUICK HITS
- “The greatness of America is yet to be seen.” Yesterday, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., local chapters of the NAACP marched on Franklin Street, while Silent Sam protesters revived last semester’s sit-in at the Confederate memorial.
- “Good policies will not be enough.” Faculty and staff have mixed feelings about Chancellor Folt’s pledge to review sexual harassment and discrimination policies in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
- “We would fight until we found a last ditch effort to stay. My kids don’t know El Salvador. They came here when they were too young.” The Trump administration's decision to end TPS has devastated local Salvadoran families, many of whom could be separated in 2019.
WHAT YOU MISSED ON CAMPUS
- Looking forward to hitting the books at the top floors of Davis? You’re out of luck — but due to a lack of student awareness about the construction happening there, the University is putting up more signage to keep people from wandering into the renovations.
- A panel of The AIDS Memorial Quilt is on display at UNC, thanks to the efforts of University officials and a student whose uncle is honored in the panel.
