Members of HPTA have been supporting the effort to remove Confederate monuments in North Carolina.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is host to a Confederate Soldier’s Memorial, also known as “Silent Sam”. Student groups kicked off a protest in mid-August, 2017, asking the University to remove the statue on the basis that it glorifies white supremacy.
The true HOT BED of North Carolina politics — The State Legislative Building. Recently, we were in the vicinity for the first Redistricting Committee Meeting, which was held in an adjacent office building. We got the chance to peek into the Legislative Building when nobody was in session … the place was completely deserted. What an pleasure to explore in silence.
