 A UNC student speaks to a crowd on Franklin Street in front of the UNC-system president’s house to speak on behalf of the removal of Silent Sam in August 2017. 

Silent Sam may be gone, but it continues to weigh on the minds of students of color

“I think I could never forget it, regardless (of whether) I was a Black student,” UNC junior Sydney Adams said. “I don’t know if it’s something I can feel resolved about ever, especially because I don’t think the solution here is going to be to my benefit at all.” In the minds of UNC students of color, Silent Sam has remained a permanent presence. So much so, that for some it's been difficult to focus on their academics and extracurricular activities.
