Beyond the Statues: The Invisibility of Black Charlottesville - Panel Discussion

What made white supremacists think invading Charlottesville on August 11-12 was a good idea?  A panel of University and Charlottesville residents, activists, and scholars will argue that the absence of a narrative counter to Confederate statues was a contributing factor because the history of black Charlottesville has been erased.

Reception to follow.
