Should monuments to the U.S. Confederacy be destroyed or removed to museums? It’s a question cities and towns across the South are now faced with. Two City Councilors in Charlottesville have called for the removal of a statue to Robert E. Lee from a downtown park. Award-winning journalist Coy Barefoot explores the subject with preeminent Civil War Historian Gary Gallagher of the University of Virginia.
The Center for Media and Citizenship, in cooperation with Gray Television’s Newsplex of Charlottesville, proudly produces The Coy Barefoot Program. The show is broadcast each Sunday morning at 10am on ABC16 in Charlottesville and on Thursday evenings at 9pm on WVPT-PBS.
