The Editorial Board takes on: "Things we like to do."

This is the first in a series of illustrations of discussion points and individual opinions from editorial board meetings that didn't make the page.

Each of The Daily Tar Heel's editorials are pitched, written and published as collaborative pieces from the Editorial Board. Every other week, the board will share some of our discussion points that didn't make the cut from our meetings to the page in a segment that features individual board members' voices. To start off "The Editorial Board Takes On" series, we asked each other what we liked to do in our free time.

Guest Column: Pauli Murray and Silent Sam

"UNC has had a long tradition of making African Americans unwelcome on campus. Silent Sam symbolized that desire to keep the school a place for those with considerable privilege."

Silent Sam's Wake

Today’s Tar Heels need to consciously build understanding with one another for a civilized community to survive this event, as it cuts to the core of a racial and historical identity divide.

Column: Sam is down and I am hopeful

Every day hundreds of our fellow Tar Heels of color walked past a statue dedicated to those who declared war against the United States in defense of slavery. The debate on whether to remove this blemish from our campus is now more heated than it has been in many years. The University spent nearly $400,000 protecting it last year alone due to strong opposition to its continued presence at UNC.
