The history of the West is complex and worthy of honest exploration. But in America today, it is tragically common to erase complicated events and figures from our textbooks, civic art and architecture, and historic memory. The city of Richmond has been and will continue to be at the center of this discussion.
Does tearing down monuments change the history of Richmond, or are we bound to forget and repeat it? We are looking forward to a special evening where bestselling author Douglas Murray will dive straight into the debate, discussing his book The War on the West and new podcast series “Uncanceled History” in the context of Richmond’s story.
Join us at The Jefferson from 7:30 – 9:00 P.M. as we unapologetically engage with his common sense approach to history, learn from it, and discover just how much we have that is worth celebrating in the West, the United States, and Richmond, Virginia.
A Q&A will be hosted by WRVA’s John Reid.
This event is open to the community. For information about the private reception or sponsorship opportunities, please reach out to Dr. Christine Emery at email@example.com.
