Separated by two lines of barricades and a sizeable police presence, Bradley Thomas Dixon and a large crowd of fellow demonstrators take part in the Silent Sam twilight service. Many demonstrators brought flowers and others waved Confederate flags to memorialize the Silent Sam statue in Chapel Hill, N.C., on Aug. 30, 2018. Police keep Pro-Silent Sam demonstrators and counter-demonstrators separated as tensions surrounding the controversial statue reached a boiling point on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill 10 days after the controversial statue was torn down.
