After officials at City Hall in Memphis, Tennessee voted unanimously to approve the measure, a black-owned nonprofit called Memphis Greenspace buys land in two parks where Confederate statues will be removed.
In the southern city of Memphis, Tennessee, the evil legacy of American slavery was obliterated after city officials cleared the way for a black-owned nonprofit entity to buy some land in two public parks where statues of Confederate figures were taken down.
According to KTLA-TV Channel 5, a CW-affiliated news station in Los Angeles, California, the Memphis City Council recently voted unanimously to order the removal of statues made of Confederate general Jefferson Davis and KKK leader Nathan Bedford Forrest.
These statues have stood for decades inside of two city parks located in Memphis. The mayor of Memphis is fully supportive of the City Council’s move and spoke at a recent news conference to express his approval of the critical measure.
