WASHINGTON — In the wake of last week’s racist massacre at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, there has been an increasingly vocal uproar calling for South Carolina to stop flying the Confederate flag on the grounds of the state capitol.

But symbols of America’s shameful history of slavery persist elsewhere around the country, far beyond South Carolina. The Edmund Pettus Bridge in Alabama — site of the famous “Bloody Sunday” civil rights march in 1965 — is named after a Confederate general. Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy, is memorialized in the names of counties, roads and public places. Even U.S. military installations bear the name of Confederate officials.

Until last year, Alexandria, Virginia, required that certain new streets bear the name of Confederate leaders.

We want to know if this legacy still exists in your town. Take a photo of a place in your town that bears the name of a Confederate leader and send it to us at openreporting@huffingtonpost.com. Or put it up on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #HeritageOfHate. Be sure to include where the photo was taken and which Confederate leader the place is named after. We’ll post some of the submissions here.
