Monuments of Hate: Addressing the Racist Legacy and Impacts of Confederate Monuments in NC
April 20, 2021 @ 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
In 2015, just weeks after the racist murders of nine people in a church in Charleston and the nation grappled with the continuing adverse impacts of Confederate iconography in our communities, the North Carolina legislature passed a law that says “… a monument, memorial, or work of art owned by the State may not be removed, relocated, or altered in any way without the approval of the North Carolina Historical Commission.” This law applies specifically to “objects of remembrance” located on public property. So what can communities do to remove Confederate monuments and imagery?
The NC Commission on Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Criminal Justice System (NC CRED) and the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law are co-sponsoring a webinar on Tuesday April 20th from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. to review the law and how communities can continue to advocate for the removal of monuments to white supremacy
