Confederate Monuments: What to Do?

Thanks to the Organization of American Historians for making this panel discussion from the 2018 annual meeting available. It is one of the best academic discussions that I have seen to date. What worked well in this discussion was the ways in which it went beyond the narrow subject of Confederate monuments to include other relevant issues. I particularly enjoyed listening to Professor Kuo Wei Tchen.
