June 25, 1963: Speaker Ban Law Adopted


The Speaker Ban Law was adopted on 25 June 1963, the last day of the legislative session. The statute has been viewed as a conservative response to UNC-Chapel Hill liberalism in general and to the support of civil rights by university personnel in particular. UNC system president and the university community reacted quickly. (NCpedia)
