Report on Myths About Black Students from Hinton-James

Document Description: Though Hinton James Residence Hall had been open less than a decade, by the early 1970s, “James Dorm” had already developed a reputation for Black student housing. As a result, myths about the dorm perpetuated by white students continued to grow, including that the South Campus dorms had greater incidences of violence. The Daily Tar Heel provided extensive coverage of these myths and continued to perpetuate them.
