This Day in the History of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


June 6, 1951
The United States Court of Appeals directed the University to admit African American students to its law school. As a result, four African American students enrolled and subsequently attended the University that summer. They were Harvey Beech of Durham, James Lassiter of Rocky Mount, J. Kenneth Lee of Greensboro, and Floyd B. McKissick of Asheville.
