Abstract

Abstract:

This reflective essay describes how the process of renaming of Hamilton Hall atones for past the treatment and legacy of Pauli Murray at the University of North Carolina (UNC). The legacy of Murray’s Jim Crow–era admission rejection, enduring race relations, and the commemorative landscape shaped the author’s experiences as an African American graduate student in the history department. Her post-rejection legacy inspired the author’s endurance, trajectory in academia, scholarship, and activism. Pauli Murray Hall demonstrates an important step in remaking UNC into a diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus.
