A statue of a Confederate soldier was beheaded at Camp Chase Cemetery in Columbus in August 2017.

The statue of Christopher Columbus at City Hall will be removed in response to calls against the glorification of the man who colonized the Americas at the expense and slaughter of thousands of Indigenous people.

Confederate statues and monuments across the country have been vandalized as well, beheaded, dumped in rivers, and in some cases officially removed in response to the protests against racial discrimination and inequality.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we discuss public statuary, what it means, when it should endure and how we decide when it’s time to put it away
