Sights and Sounds from Charlottesville

This past Saturday I co-led a tour of Charlottesville’s Confederate monuments with Dr. Jalane Schmidt of UVA. We started at the slave auction marker on Courthouse Square before stopping at the Confederate soldier statue as well as the Lee and Jackson monuments. We had a nice crowd on-hand, including NBC29 News, which filmed the tour for a short segment.

Here are a few short videos from the tour.

Next week I am heading back  to Charlottesville to speak to the graduate students in the history department at UVA on social media and my black Confederates book.
