The University covered a plaque at Kenan Memorial Stadium with a UNC logo, over a year after former Chancellor Carol Folt announced that the dedication would be changed in 2018. 

Plaque with racist ties at Kenan Stadium covered by UNC logo

In October 2018, then-Chancellor Carol Folt announced that the University would rededicate Kenan Stadium to William Rand Kenan Jr. so as not to honor his father, who was the commander of a white supremacist unit. More than a year later, the University has covered a plaque with temporary signage.

Junior guard Garrison Brooks (15) daps up his teammates during the exhibition game against Winston Salem State in the Smith Center on Friday, Nov. 1, 2019. UNC beat WSSU 96-61.

'Thrown into the fire': Garrison Brooks is the reluctant leader of UNC basketball

Junior big man Garrison Brooks is on the verge of leading North Carolina this season as the team’s only returning starter. Brooks, the Tar Heels’ defensive anchor from a year ago, is also UNC’s leading returning scorer with 7.9 points per game. He’ll look to incorporate six new faces, including grad transfers Christian Keeling and Justin Pierce, as well as five-star first-years Armando Bacot and Cole Anthony, into the fray. How did we get here?

UNC senior guard Brandon Robinson (4) takes a free throw shot at the exhibition game against Winston-Salem State on Friday, Nov. 1, 2019 in the Smith Center. Shortly afterward, Robinson sustained an ankle injury and did not play for the rest of the game. UNC won 96-61.

Analysis: Without Brandon Robinson, UNC's new wings could have to step up early

North Carolina basketball was already going to have to lean on a number of new faces on the wing this season; then, senior guard Brandon Robinson went down. His absence will present even more opportunities for a few newcomers – graduate transfers Christian Keeling and Justin Pierce – plus Andrew Platek on the wing early in the season.

Editorial: A closer look at the campus climate survey

 In our opinion, expecting the University to do as much as possible to make sure we don’t get sexually assaulted is not too much to ask. Nor is it too much to expect that our experiences are validated and investigated fairly.
