Join a conversation around the power of symbols, statues, and race in 21st century America! In collaboration with Virginians for Reconciliation, three influential leaders in the Commonwealth of Virginia will discuss the past, present, and future role that historical symbols play as Virginia attempts to engage with its history, address the wounds of racism, and construct an accurate narrative of its past.
