Hundreds of people rallied Tuesday night at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill campus in opposition of a Confederate statue known as Silent Sam.
Protesters surrounded the bronze monument and later blocked traffic. They were heard chanting "Tear it down" and "Hey hey, ho ho. This racist statue's got to go," as police in riot gear protected the statue.
The rally came a week after protesters tore down a bronze Confederate statue in front of a government building in Durham. Days later, Duke University chose to remove a limestone statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from its chapel.
