Saunders Hall, completed in 1922 is named for UNC class of 1854 graduate William Lawrence Saunders. UNC student leaders have been pushing for months to have Saunders Hall renamed because of Saunders' reported membership in the Ku Klux Klan. The push is to rename the building Hurston Hall, in honor of the black writer Zora Neale Hurston.
