Decaturish intern Alex Brown will be joining the show from the Decatur Square during a rally held by the Beacon Hill Black Alliance for Human Rights. The purpose of the rally is to demand the removal of all monuments to hate and white supremacy presently located around the area of the historic DeKalb County courthouse, including a Confederate monument. Encouraged by the court order by Judge Clarence Seeliger to order immediate removal of the Confederate monument, the Beacon Hill Black Alliance for Human Rights is holding this gathering to show support for the actions of the city of Decatur in filing the complaint and to urge DeKalb County to move ahead swiftly with the removal plans of a “nuisance” which is “manifestly injurious to the public health or safety.”
The show will also feature commentary from Decaturish columnists Hans Utz and George Chidi. We look forward to seeing you at 6 p.m.
