Silent Sam, children 8/25

A look into the Silent Sam protest on Saturday

On Aug. 25, a protest unfolded as supporters of Confederate monument Silent Sam clashed with those in favor of the removal of the statue. Since the toppling of the monument on Aug. 20, 11 arrests have been made, though UNC Media Relations has stated that more may occur. Chancellor Carol Folt spoke with reporters on Saturday afternoon, shortly after the protest ended, about future steps and University safety.  Photo editor Janet Ayala and photographer Sarah Redmond gave us an inside look into the protest.
