Hinton James Residence Hall is one of four dormitories that comprise the South Campus residence community, an informal counter-space created by Black students, beginning in the early 1970s, to serve as powerful community space for themselves within and against the white supremacy of the University. Hinton James, as the largest dorm in the community, drew a tremendous amount of scrutiny from white students and administrators.
