    Dallas task force recommends Confederate monument removal, some street name changes

    Dallas' Confederate task force recommended Friday that another monument be removed and some street names be changed.

    The vote in favor of taking out the Confederate monument at Pioneer Park in downtown Dallas next to the convention center passed easily, 11-4 with one abstention.

    The monument has a Confederate soldier atop a 6 story tall tower and surrounded by four Confederate leaders. The monument in the little noticed cemetery was built in 1896 and is valued at a $500,000. Moving it will cost an estimated $800,000.

    "Have we ever thought about we can't afford not to? Those who are not African American, put yourself in our shoes," said task force member Dr. Ervin Seamster. "It is very painful."

    The task force also opted to endorse changing the name of five streets in Dallas linked to the Confederacy, but no ties to Dallas: Lee, Cabell, Stonewall, Beauregard and Gano. None of the streets are major thoroughfares.

    There are total of 17 streets in the city with Confederate ties, including notable ones like Lemmon and Gaston. The task force did not recommend changing those major streets.

    Confederate symbols at Fair Park should stay, the task force said, but with added context and information for people to read. There's a Confederate battle flag in a mural and a Confederate medallion that's part of a giant gold panel in the Hall of State.

    Friday was the final meeting of the task force. All of their decisions are only recommendations that will first go to the cultural affairs committee and then the city council, who will ultimately decide what actually happens.
