1. What does the first video and the image I posted suggest to you about the Confederate monuments and their relationship to the period of Jim Crow (beginning in the 1890s with Plessy v Ferguson)?
2. What do you think the relationship between history (learning about the past) and erecting public monuments in public space are?
