Celebrities are speaking out on social media after the Confederate flag was taken down in South Carolina on Friday morning (July 10).
The historic moment came weeks after the Charleston church shooting and lots of pressure on lawmakers to remove the symbol of racism.
The flag was raised above the South Carolina State House back in 1962 to protest the civil rights movement and the state House of Representatives finally voted to take it down on Thursday. Governor Haley signed the measure into law later that day.
South Carolina taking down the confederate flag – a signal of good will and healing, and a meaningful step towards a better future.
