Deondra Rose, assistant professor of public policy and political science, has been appointed to the Durham City-County Committee on Confederate Monuments and Memorials.
The committee was established by the Durham County Commission, Mayor Steve Schewel and the Durham City Council to gather public input and make a recommendation about the stone base of the Confederate soldier statue toppled by protestors last August. The base is on county grounds in front of the former courthouse building, which now houses county departments and the commissioners’ chambers.
The committee will also catalog other symbols of the Confederacy in Durham. It is expected to deliver recommendations in November.
