     The Richmong CBS TV affiliate reports the statue is now on display at The Valentine museum on East Clay Street.

"That statue was seen as the first domino to fall during the social justice protests that lead to additional Confederate statues to come down.

Davis has sat in storage at the city's wastewater treatment plant under cover since.

...The statue is on loan from Richmond’s Black History Museum for six months."
