What Do We Do With the Statues?

In 2020, the decades-old debate over what to do with controversial statues re-emerged amidst the vandalism, renaming, and removal of monuments of confederate leaders, imperialists and pro-slavery advocates worldwide. Should these statues be removed? Should plaques be erected beneath them that explain their controversial history? Should they be allowed to remain in their unaltered form? This talk will look back at the debates that have raged over the past year, explore the history behind the destruction or alteration of monuments and pose some answers to the question: What do we do with the statues? Bookings essential.
