There are members of the Chapel Hill community who know the story of James Cates, a 22-year-old man who was murdered on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. The James Cates Remembrance Coalition, a collective that includes Cates’s family members, community leaders, scholars, activists, and students are commemorating James Cates’s life and death through a multi-phase community history project.

Coalition members will provide historical context about James Cates, including what happened the evening he was murdered and its future implications. Attendees will learn about the growing research archive as well as ongoing efforts to collect history, future project goals, and an update of the UNC Cates memorial and building name.
