ABC6 reports the Christopher Columbus statue at Columbus State Community College is in danger of coming down.

The college has created a group that will consider removing the statue.

“We are in active discussion about swiftly addressing the troubling history and legacy represented by the Christopher Columbus statue on our campus. Work already underway has been accelerated and we commit to being transparent about our plan of action,” a CSCC spokesperson tells ABC 6/Fox 28.

The school is speeding up plans already put into motion before protests began across Columbus and around the country.

Confederate statues and monuments have been torn down across the country and several statues of Columbus have been defaced or removed.
