The Southern Poverty Law Center estimates that there are more than 700 Confederate monuments in America's public spaces, along with hundreds of schools, streets, and communities named for Confederate icons.
Historian, educator, and author Kevin Levin has blogged at Civil War Memory for more than a decade. He will share the historical origins of these monuments -- their connection to "Lost Cause" remembrance of the Civil War and the Jim Crow era of the 20th century -- and how the divisive current debate over their future connects to our nation's memory of slavery.
