UNC-NAACP holds demonstration in protest of Rahsheem Holland's promotion

On Monday, July 12, the NAACP held a demonstration in protest of Rahsheem Holland's promotion as acting Chief of UNC Police.  The demonstration started with remarks from UNC-Chapel Hill NAACP President Jarrah Faye, who said students at the June 30 protest were not aware or informed that the Board of Trustees meeting would be closed.  “I’m not surprised, and I’m sure nobody else here is, because they are known for brutalizing students, and they are known for specifically harassing black students,” she said.
