On Thursday, June 17th, the 6th anniversary of the Charleston Church Shooting, PBS’s POV will host “Hate Still Stands,” a roundtable Facebook live event featuring activist Bree Newsome, documentary director CJ Hunt, and SPLC Chief of Staff Lecia Brooks discussing the future of the Confederate symbols movement and the fight to remove symbols of white supremacy from public spaces. The conversation will be moderated by Erika Dilday, executive producer for POV.
The roundtable will also announce SPLC’s latest “Whose Heritage?” data drop, which addresses the unfinished business of reckoning with the 32 empty Confederate pedestals that remain standing, primarily in Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia. In the six years since the Charleston massacre, 333 monuments to white supremacy have come down. Yet over 2,000 symbols of hate still stand across the U.S.
After learning that nine Black people were killed during a Bible study at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church by a gunman that fetishized Confederate symbols, the SPLC began to catalogue all the Confederate symbols located in public spaces across the country in their report: Whose Heritage? Public Symbols of the Confederacy. This research is updated annually to provide local communities with the tools to spur the removal of white supremacist symbols across the country.
To watch the live event, visit POV’s Facebook Page on Thursday, June 17th at 7:30 pm.
