The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill faced criticism this week for its decision to pay the Sons of Confederate Veterans $2.5 million, and hand over the Confederate monument Silent Sam which was erected during the Jim Crow era and loomed over the school’s campus until it was toppled in August, 2018.

Rob Schofield and Mitch Kokai discuss the development. Meanwhile, the state lottery commission is making a recommendation that runs counter to recent efforts by state lawmakers. Those stories and more this week in state politics.

Jeff Tiberii covers politics for WUNC. Before that, he served as the station's Greensboro Bureau Chief.
