Controversy History – Quality Place: Monuments & Tourism

We are proud to announce our Controversy/History series! This new take on our long-running Community Conversations will explore contentious, present-day issues by comparing historic debates with modern data.

The second event of the series will focus on monuments and tourism using historic figures from Richmond’s past. An expert speaker will then provide on-the-ground data concerning Civil War tourism today. Attendees will engage in in-depth conversations and will receive concrete action steps.

We are partnering with the Capital Region Collaborative and aligning our discussion topics with their regional priorities. We are also proud to partner with radio host Kelli Lemon for our biography segments.
