Roundtable focusing on battle over Confederate monuments

The battle over Confederate monuments will be the subject of an upcoming roundtable discussion sponsored by the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy.

The recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, has sparked a national debate on the place of monuments honoring Confederate political and military leaders in our society. While some see such memorials as part of America’s history, others see them as symbols of slavery and racism. Join moderator Dr. William Leeman, associate professor in the Department of History, for a discussion of Civil War memory and issues of race in America today.

The roundtable will be held at 11:45 a.m. Friday, Sept. 15 in the Miley Hall executive dining room. Roundtable discussions are open to Salve Regina students, faculty and staff. The Pell Center provides a free lunch.

As space is limited, those interested in attending should RSVP to (401) 341-2927 or pellcenter@salve.edu.
