The Athens-Clarke County Hall Commission Chambers were filled with silent protesters holding Linnentown signs on Tuesday, Feb. 4 to protest the local government and University of Georgia's removal of Linnentown's black community in the 1960s. Several of the protesters took the podium to voice their grievances to the ACC mayor and commission.
