On the night of June 18, hundreds of people gathered to watch the removal of the 30-foot obelisk, a Confederate monument, that has stood in the Decatur Square since 1908 when it was planted there by the United Daughters of the Confederacy to honor Confederate soldiers. Beacon Hill Black Alliance for Human Rights members were among those gathered, overjoyed over the result of their efforts, which included protests, rallies, discussions, applying pressure and uniting the community.
