Taylor was among some 500 people who gathered across the street from the school, which had been scheduled to integrate. More than 50 years after South Carolina raised a Confederate flag at its Statehouse to protest the civil rights movement, the rebel banner is scheduled to be removed Friday, July 10, 2015, morning during a ceremony. (AP Photo, File)The Confederate battle flag has been removed from South Carolina's Statehouse grounds, in the wake of the massacre of nine African-Americans — including a state senator — at a historic black church in Charleston last month. The successful push for the rebel banner's removal came after Dylann Storm Roof, the white suspect charged with murder, appeared in widely seen photos holding Confederate flags. The swift decision to remove the flag comes five decades after it was raised to commemorate the American Civil War's centennial and remained at the Statehouse to protest the civil rights movement. Here's a brief explanation of the Confederate battle flag, a historic but deeply divisive symbol that remains present in the American South.
