In this Sept. 8, 2011, photo, Annie Chambers Caddell poses for a photo outside her home in Summerville, S.C., beside a fence put up by her neighbors to block their view of the Confederate flag she displays. Dozens protested last October when Annie Chambers Caddell placed a Confederate flag on her porch in her historically black neighborhood. Earlier this year, neighbors contributed money to build two solid wooden fences on either side of her property to shield the flag. Then this summer, Caddell raised a flag pole in her front yard and the Confederate banner can be seen over the fence (AP Photo /Bruce Smith)
