06/16 - Symbol or Statement? History in Public Spaces (encore)

Is the display of Civil War statues in public justified or do they belong only in museums?

Full Program and Information

In December, New Orleans’ City Council approved Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s plan to remove four Confederate monuments from the city. But the action has been postponed by a federal court of appeals. And while two attempts in the state legislature to block the removal of the monuments failed this session, a statewide poll shows that 73 percent of Louisiana residents oppose moving the structures.

So, what should be the role of state and local government in regulating these symbols? Is the display of Civil War statues in public justified or do they belong only in museums? Louisiana Public Square explores the debate in an encore presentation of its award-winning episode, “Symbol or Statement? History in Public Spaces,” airing Wednesday, June 22 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD.
