Pro-Confederate monument banner flies over Jazz Fest

An airplane towed a banner reading: “Got Jazz, Keep Heritage!” over the New Orleans Jazz Festival on Friday, May 5th.

The Statues of Confederate leaders Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis and P.G.T. Beauregard are set to be removed by the city, within the next 45 days, following the removal of the Battle of Liberty Place monument on April 24th.
