Finding America: UnMonumental
UnMonumental is a weekly series about how we remember our past in Richmond. Stories air every Friday morning and afternoon.
UnMonumental is produced by Kelley Libby and brought to you by WVTF/Radio IQ and Finding America, a national initiative produced by AIR, the Association of Independents in Radio, Incorporated, and with financial support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Wyncote Foundation, the John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
The story of racial inequality and tension in Charlottesville—as in many American cities—is older, more complex, and largely untold than what unfolded on August 12th.
Join us for a panel discussion, including UnMonumental's Kelley Libby, about how journalists cover race and racism in American communities. Hosted by Kyle Pope, editor and publisher of Columbia Journalism Review, and Brendan Fitzgerald, director of CJR’s United States Project on Monday, September 18th at The Haven at First and Market in Charlottesville.
