Tuskegee Confederat­e statue is focus of suit


A lawsuit has been filed that could decide the fate of a Confederat­e monument that has stood at the center of nearly allBlack Tuskegee for 115 years.

The Macon County Commission in Alabama has filed suit against United Daughters of the Confederac­y chapters arguing that the county owns the property where the statue is located and wants the title to the plot, WSFA-TV reported.

The statue has been the subject of demonstrat­ions for decades in Tuskegee, which is almost all Black and the home of Tuskegee University.
