Let’s Raise Some Heel: A History of Student Activism at Carolina – The passion of our student body is one of the defining features of UNC-Chapel Hill. From the pacifist movement of the 1930s to the recent renaming of Carolina Hall, our legacy of student activism reflects many of the major national socio-political challenges of the past century. Join University Archivist Nick Graham on a journey through history and discover how student activism has shaped the contemporary Carolina community. These on-campus walking tours are led by experts on specific aspects of Carolina History. The tour is free, open to the public, and lasts about an hour to an-hour-and-a-half. Tours begin at UNC-Chapel Hill Visitors’ Center, located in the West Wing of Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, located in downtown Chapel Hill at 250 East Franklin Street.
