On Saturday, August 12, 2017, White nationalists assembled on the campus of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville for a “Unite the Right” march to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee monument. This rally turned deadly and divided a nation. In wake of the tragedies at Charlottesville, it’s critical for colleges and universities to talk about the state of race relations on campus, and what to do with problematic monuments. This presentation will examine the history of confederate monuments and symbols on college campuses and offer solutions of how we could address them.
