A crowd of people gathered in downtown Durham, North Carolina, on Monday night to witness the toppling of a Confederate monument by protesters who pulled down the statue with a rope. Protesters said destroying the monument was their answer to the deadly attack by a white supremacist in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.
