Christopher Columbus Statue Removed In Trenton, New Jersey

A statue of Christopher Columbus has been removed in Columbus Park in Trenton, New Jersey. It has also been announced that the name of the park will be renamed. 

“Our communities rightfully expect that the individuals we celebrate actually represent the principles of freedom and equality that we all hold dear, we’re grateful for the community input we’ve received on both sides of the issue, but what we know about Columbus simply makes his image a poor fit for a city that is as diverse as Trenton.” – Reed Gusciora, Trenton Mayor

The removal of the statue is all apart of the social injustice movement that has been sweeping through America.
