We see them coming down all over the country…monuments to white supremacy, sculptures installed to reinforce the false narratives of the ‘lost cause’, and names that immortalize purveyors of hate. In my own city, the fight for progress continues. Yes, we have really big issues to tackle ranging from economic disparity to institutionalized racism, but if we can’t even remove these symbols that represent oppression of black citizens we are unlikely to move the needle on ensuring universal human rights. So, they ALL need to come down!
