As cities rush to remove Confederate symbols after Charlottesville activists in Hollywood, Florida fear violence

As cities rush to remove Confederate symbols after Charlottesville activists in Hollywood, Florida fear violenceIn a small city in south Florida, a relatively quiet effort to simply remove street signs bearing Confederate names has felt the reverberations caused by the bloody events in Charlottesville last weekend – and it has activists worried. Just fifty miles south of the President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, activists and community leaders in Hollywood, Florida say that they’re finally on the brink of victory in their years-long effort to rename three streets that bear the names of Confederate generals – just as many other communities across the country are considering their own Confederate monuments. Activists say a previous protest over renaming the signs attracted a lot of faces they now are seeing pop up in pictures from the Virginia white supremacy rally.
