This morning, activist Bree Newsome scaled the flagpole in front of the South Carolina Statehouse and removed the Confederate flag.
“We removed the flag today because we can’t wait any longer. We can’t continue like this another day. It’s time for a new chapter where we are sincere about dismantling white supremacy and building toward true racial justice and equality,” Newsome said in a statement.
