UNC Chapel Hill activism

Chris Baumann on activism at UNC Chapel Hill.

You know, it just doesn’t [snaps fingers] happen like that. I mean, we had, you know, our teachers, and with Margo Crawford and the Campus Y leaders, Al McSurely, I mean, we definitely had older folks around us kind of moving us along, and, of course, Marsha and Annie and Larry, I mean, they were all older than us. But also you’ve got to learn, right? That’s where you learn. But, I mean, we didn’t know what we were doing. I mean, look, SEAC grew out of nothing, right, just putting an ad in the newspaper. The Black Cultural Center started with a small meeting, and all these things happened. And again, while we won victories with the housekeepers, there’s still a lot of work.[1]
