Monday Movie: When Heritage = Hate: The Truth About Confederacy in America

Join us as locally organized group People Who Care present "When Heritage = Hate: The Truth About Confederacy in America" on Monday, Jan 29th, at 7:00pm. 

The lecture is a presentation by Jeffery Robinson, ACLU Deputy Legal Director and Director of the Trone Center for Justice and Equality.

President Trump claims that removing Confederate symbols amounts to erasing history. False. This is about whether we as a nation choose to honor those who made their names fighting for white supremacy and slavery. Taking down these symbols from our public spaces is a critical step toward rooting out racial injustice and creating a more inclusive and just society.

We need to be informed for this fight. Jeffery Robinson will speak about the dark history of the Confederacy and the monuments built in public spaces around the country – what these symbols really mean and how they’ve been used by politicians to rewrite history and incite racial violence. Then we’ll roll up our sleeves and join the movement to take down every last one.
