No Common Ground by Karen L. Cox

Confederate Monuments and the Ongoing Fight for Racial Justice // When it comes to Confederate monuments, there is no common ground.

In this narrative about the movements to raise, preserve, protest, and remove Confederate monuments, Karen L. Cox explores what these monuments mean to those who erected them as well as the stories of the civil rights activities, Black elected officials, and movements of ordinary people who fight to have them removed.
