“I thought it was just a beautiful thing (when he was in school); I didn’t know there was a controversy,” says Bobby Gersten, 97, about Silent Sam on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus Sunday, April 8, 2018. Today UNC’s oldest living former basketball and baseball player says the Confederate monument should probably come down. “Too bad because it’s a beautiful thing, but it really has no place.”
