Today, the North Carolina Commission on Racial Equity and Ethnic Disparities (NC CRED) launched a statewide campaign to remove Confederate monuments from courthouse grounds. The group asserts that the monuments, many of which were erected during the Jim Crow era, should no longer have a legitimate space in public property. The campaign’s goal is to identify, document the history of, and remove all Confederate Monuments currently erected on courthouse grounds in the state of North Carolina.
