To Georgia fans, this comes as no surprise: Uga, the university's beloved English bulldog, was named the top college mascot in the country in a recent 2017 USA TODAY index poll. Since 1956, all of the University of Georgia’s mascots have been part of the same pure English bulldog line owned by Sonny Seiler.

On Thursday, August 24, 2017, the University of Georgia’s Demosthenian Literary Society gathered in Demosthenian Hall for their weekly meeting at 7 p.m., but this meeting they debated the controversial issue that has taken the nation and state by storm: the removal of Confederate monuments.

The piece of history that was under debate was the portrait of confederate general Robert E. Lee that hangs in the upper chamber of Demosthenian Hall.
The society voted unanimously to remove the portrait in a 27 to 0 to 1 vote and immediately displaced the artifact from the upper chamber.

Mokah Johnson, the president of Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement, poses for a portrait on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 in front of the "Soldiers' Monument." Several protests and riots have erupted in cities throughout the country after the deadly violence that followed a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Now, statues across the country have been protested by community members and sometimes removed by city governments. Athens is no exception. Community members such as Mokah Johnson, look to their own communities to continue the conversation locally, beginning with the β€œSoldiers’ Monument” on Broad Street.
