A Conversation with Hilary Green about Confederate Monuments

Back in June I sat down with historian Dr. Hilary Green to talk about the Confederate monument controversy as part of the “Cabinet Conversation” series hosted by my good friends at Ford’s Theatre.

It was a real thrill to be able to chat with Dr. Green. She is doing important work to raise awareness at the University of Alabama of its deep ties to the history of white supremacy and slavery. I am eagerly awaiting her next book, which will explore how African Americans have remembered and commemorated the Civil War.

C-SPAN decided to pick up the interview, which it aired last night. You can watch a preview below.
