A discussion of Confederate monuments as symbols that continue to divide our country. Dr. Ron Goodwin of Prairie View A&M University explores the Lost Cause mythology behind these statues and the groups who erected them. While these monuments may honor individuals who possessed characteristics of honor and loyalty in the eyes of some, they continue to be a constant reminder of the efforts to protect slavery and the damage done to political and social institutions in the views of others.
