The Lie Behind the Monuments
The Confederate monuments across the united states are symbols of America’s white supremacist history. Tearing down these monuments isn’t erasing history it’s correcting the mistakes of our racist past. Most of these Confederate monuments were in fact erected during the jim crow and civil rights eras, decades after the civil war, with the intention of terrorizing people of color and celebrating white supremacy. These monuments are themselves an erasure of history.
Our map will provide our community across the country a central location to identify and locate these symbols of white supremacy. Each monument will have with it associated local politicians and their contact information so that they can hear directly from our community. We will develop tools that allow dedicated activists anonymous communication in order to send us photos, videos, and updates about your direct action.
Together we can tear them all down.
