Toppling of Confederate Statues Reflects Reckoning with Slavery & Historical Racism

The destruction and removal of racist confederate monuments in cities across the United States during recent weeks is part of an overdue reckoning with “historical racisms that have brought us to the point where we are today,”

Angela Davis says. “Racism should have been immediately confronted in the aftermath of the end of slavery.”
