After protesters pulled down the "Silent Sam" Confederate statue on UNC-Chapel Hill's campus back in August, only the base of the monument, seen here, remained. In January of this year, Chancellor Carol Folt ordered its removal at the same time she announced she would step down in May. But the UNC Board of Governors, saying it was "incredibly disappointed" by her actions, forced her out instead on Jan. 31. (Photo by Anthony Crider via Flickr.)
