A Confederate monument dedicated in 1909 stands in the middle of the square in Tuskegee, Ala., on Thursday, June 28, 2018. Demonstrators once tried to topple the monument and it has been the target of vandals. Yet a Confederate heritage group owns the land, and the memorial has survived generations in a mostly black city known as a landmark of minority education and empowerment. Black graffiti from a vandalism incident that occurred last year is still visible on the base. (AP Photo/Jay Reeves)
