Students, faculty, and community members gathered on Franklin Street to protest the University's proposal to spend $5.3 million, in addition to $800,000 annually, on a new on-campus building housing Silent Sam.

Traffic was stopped in all directions as demonstrators marched through both lanes of Franklin Street on Monday night. Demonstrators leading the way held a large sign that read, "Put it up. We'll tear it down. Anti-racists run this town." The protest was in response to the proposal by Chancellor Carol Folt and the UNC Board of Trustees to create a $5.3 million "History and Education Center," a freestanding single-use building, to house the Confederate Silent Sam monument on the UNC Odum Village site.
