A message from the chancellor: Honoring Hortense McClinton and Henry Owl


In 1930, a UNC graduate named Henry Owl walked into the Swain County registrar’s office holding a copy of his master’s thesis. Henry Owl wanted to register to vote, and he knew that local authorities were using an unconstitutional literacy test to keep Cherokee citizens away from the polls. He was turned away, but that’s not where Owl’s story ended. (UNC.edu)
