Carolina pioneer LeRoy Frasier passes away at 80


Carolina has lost one of its historic pioneers. LeRoy Frasier, one of the first African-American undergraduates to attend UNC, passed away at the age of 80 on Dec. 29. Frasier, his brother Ralph and John Lewis Brandon were the first undergraduate students to integrate the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1955, challenging racial segregation in North Carolina.
