VR panorama | Martin Luther King Day Rally, Columbia SC

Spectators use the Confederate monument on the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse to catch a glimpse of speakers during the annual Martin Luther King Day Rally sponsored by the SC NAACP. Next to the monument flies the Confederate battle flag, which flew over the dome of the State House until July 1, 2000, when the flag was moved to the Monument to South Carolina's Confederate Dead on the north side of the State House grounds. The South Carolina State House is the only state capitol in the nation to have a monument dedicated to the contributions and history of African-Americans on its grounds.
