In Chapel Hill, North Carolina, hundreds of student protesters toppled the “Silent Sam” Confederate statue at the University of North Carolina Monday night, on the eve of the first day of classes. The toppled statue was erected in 1913 to honor Confederate soldiers and has been the target of repeated protests in recent years. One UNC doctoral student, Maya Little, is facing charges of property destruction and possible expulsion for pouring red ink and her own blood on the statue in a protest in April.
