Confederate Monuments and Memorials

Here’s sociologist James Loewen, an expert on race relations, speaking about confederate monuments and memorials at the American Civil War Museum’s 2017 symposium at the Library of Virginia.

I wasn’t too impressed with this presentation. I thought it was a bit rambling, and he stayed off the topic for too long.

The video’s description reads, “James Loewen, author of Lies Across America: What Our Historic Sites Get Wrong and other works talked about new perspectives on Confederate monuments. ‘Confederate Monuments: Modest Proposals’ was part of the American Civil War Museum’s 2017 annual symposium, ‘Lightning Rods of Controversy: Civil War Monuments Past, Present, and Future.’ It was co-sponsored by the John L. Nau III Center for Civil War History at the University of Virginia and The Library of Virginia.”
