N. Carolina: Two Arrested Over Vandalism Of African American Monument
Reuters reports Police on Monday arrested two people over the vandalism of a memorial to slaves and African American workers who helped build the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Thie campus is still roiled by last year’s toppling of a Confederate monument.
The Unsung Founders’ Memorial, erected in 2005 at UNC’s flagship campus, was vandalized at about 1:30 a.m.
On March 31 by two people, including one with ties to a group called Heirs to the Confederacy, the university police said.
