This residence hall was named for slave poet George Moses Horton in 2007. Horton was a slave in nearby Chatham County who taught himself to read and write. A book of his poems, The Hope of Liberty, appeared in 1829 and was the first book ever published by an African American in the South. Horton published two more collections of his poetry before 1865. Horton Hall is the first building at Carolina named in honor of a slave and is believed to be the first university building in the nation to carry a slave’s name.
