The Department of Communication’s Statement on the UNC System’s Decision to Provide $2.5 Million to the Sons of Confederate Veterans

The Department of Communication strongly condemns the recent decision by the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina to provide $2.5 million to the Sons of Confederate Veterans to continue the preservation of the Silent Sam monument. The SCV, like Silent Sam, directly and actively undermines the efforts by this department and many others to educate our students and accurately portray the legacy of violence, hatred, and injustice in the university’s history. By providing financial support to white supremacists for the preservation of a monument to racism, the UNC system not only works against these efforts, but also hurts and endangers its community.
