Taking down the Confederate Flag doesn’t erase South Carolina’s past as a center of the slave-owning south. How is this past whitewashed today? And in the latest installment of our Making L.A. series, we look at the changing business that built this town: Hollywood.

The Confederate Flag remains a symbol for people like Dylann Roof, who will go on trial for killing nine black parishioners in a South Carolina church. If Roof goes to prison, he’s likely to get a hero’s welcome by the white supremacist groups that are endemic in America’s prisons. But it’s not quite that simple.
