History Happy Hour: The Byzantine Backstory of Richmond’s Jefferson Davis Monument

June 8, 2020 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

Free Donation Encouraged

The future of the Jefferson Davis statue on Richmond’s Monument Avenue has been and will be again a subject of discussion – especially as the city’s Monument Avenue Commission in 2018 recommended its removal. But what of the monument’s past? When, why, how, and by whom was it erected? Why is it located where it is? This program explores the monument’s fascinating and unexpectedly complicated backstory.

This event is free but registration is required to stream.
