CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WTVD) -- A permanent memorial for James Cates Junior is being unveiled on UNC's campus.
Cates, a civil rights activist, was a Chapel Hill man who was killed on campus in 1970.
The 22-year-old, who lived near campus, attended a party and was stabbed to death by members of a white supremacist biker gang outside the student union.
Three men were charged with first-degree murder, and acquitted by an all-white jury.
On Monday, the university will host a dedication ceremony at 4 p.m. honoring Cates' life and welcoming the new memorial.
It will be at a popular gathering spot on campus, 'The Pit.'
