From Pedestals of Privilege: Deconstructing Confederate Monuments

Sunday, October 22, 2017
10:30 am - 11:30 am

Dr. Mark Yount

A majority of Americans believe the South waged Civil War to defend “states’ rights,” not slavery. Many argue that to remove or relocate Confederate monuments is to revise the past. Do these relics of reconstruction still stand for white privilege? How much southern mythology needs to be deconstructed for the causal chains of slavery to stop rattling our history?
