Activist Reflects On Taking Down Confederate Flag
In the wake of the Charleston shooting that left nine dead at a church, a Charlotte activist has become somewhat of a household name. Bree Newsome scaled the South Carolina statehouse flagpole to take down the Confederate battle flag as the debate goes on regarding its location.
Newsome spoke to WFAE’s Sarah Delia at the Little Rock AME Zion Church in Charlotte. Newsome started the conversation by describing what was going through her head as she climbed the pole.
