Columbus State Community College has removed a statue of Christopher Columbus from its campus, saying the statue was “not consistent” with the school’s values.
The statue, which has stood on the community college’s campus in downtown Columbus, Ohio, since 1988, was disassembled on June 19. It took several hours for workers to saw the statue in half, lift the sections with a crane, and finally place them on a flatbed truck.
