UNC Body Bans Segregation

Biographical/Historical abstract:

Additional contributor:

Description: Picking up a report from the Daily Tar Heel out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, The Guilfordian reported on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Wesley Foundation policy to desegregate the Methodist student organization. This went along with the Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education which ruled segregation in schools was inherently unequal. As a public school, UNC was lawfully required to abide this ruling.
