In recent years, universities, cities, and states increasingly struggle with demands to remove symbols of the Confederacy versus demands, or even state laws, to leave them be. That struggle tragically includes the Charlottesville, Virginia protests. These symbols are part of history, but a history many do not want honored or observed in the public square. Three panelists provide insight and opinions on the controversies. Selika Ducksworth-Lawton, UW-Eau Claire history professor; Bob Zeidel UW-Stout history professor, and Shane Miller, UW-Stout Applied Social Science student. Patrick Guilfoile, UW-Stout Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs, moderates.
