HBCU students explore the phenomenon of Confederate monuments as an expression of hatred or heritage.  In an effort to remove these Confederate symbols, students organize to find out why they were created and when they were installed.  The answers explain a lot about American anti-black racism & provide them with reasons to effectively petition for their removal.
