Memorializing History: A Conversation About Monuments, Truth, and Justice

Memorializing History

A Conversation About Monuments, Truth, and Justice 

The Neutral Ground documents New Orleans’ fight over monuments and America’s troubled romance with the Lost Cause. In 2015, director CJ Hunt was filming the New Orleans City Council’s vote to remove four confederate monuments. But when that removal was halted by death threats, CJ set out to understand why a losing army from 1865 still held so much power in America.

We invite you to "Memorializing History: A conversation About Monuments, Truth, and Justice," a virtual film screening and conversation with filmmaker CJ Hunt, Connecticut-based artist and educator Allison Minto MFA ’20, Senior Lecturer in African American Studies and Film & Media Studies Thomas Allen Harris, and Sterling Professor of History, of African American Studies, and of American Studies David Blight.
