Confederate monument in Asheville to be Demolished

Asheville City Council approves funding for demolition of Confederate monument of Zebulon Vance. The 75 foot tall statue of the confederate governor is in downtown Asheville and had been a site for recent protest. The statue was voted to be taken down in a 6-1 city council vote and will promptly be removed. This is a good step for North Carolina, as we move towards remembering those who fought for equality and not racism.
