Battle Ending: Hollywood Ready To Surrender Confederate Street Names

ZonaHollywood.com - CATEGORY Latest news: TITLE

It was a two-year fight — but Benjamin Israel is close to winning his battle to remove the names of three Confederate war heroes from Hollywood streets.

On Wednesday, after months of debate, Hollywood commissioners are expected to sign off on a plan to change the names of the streets to Freedom, Hope and Liberty.

For the past 91 years, those same streets have honored John Bell Hood, Robert E. Lee and Nathan Bedford Forrest, also known as the first grand wizard of the KKK.

“Forrest was a monster and yet you have a street here named after him,” said Israel, an African-American and Orthodox Jew who made it his mission to banish streets named after “slave owners and traitors.”
