The City of Orlando has released a new video highlighting the new home of the Confederate statue that is being moved on Tuesday from Lake Eola to Greenwood Cemetery. The 45 second spot aims to bring more understanding to the controversial decision.
“The beauty of the cemetery is that it’s non-judgemental. It’s an equal place” said Don Price, Greenwood Cemetery Sexton “We have all types of people, that the only thing they have in common is that they’re Orlando citizens and death.”
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer announced that the statue would be moving last month, which has caused protests, with opponents of the decision saying the city was removing or hiding history. The statue known as “Johnny Reb” has been at Lake Eola for 100 years.
