On this episode of the Collective Voice, we see the Confederate monuments through the eyes of three people: Terri Everett, a Wilmington resident who grew up in the region when it was segregated and is now running for Congress; Andre Brown, a local attorney and member of the African American Business Council; and Chris Fonvielle, a historian and one of the region’s experts on the Civil War.

Note: CFC reached out to the Daughters of the Confederacy, which helped build one of Wilmington’s monuments, in addition to others all around the south. They declined to participate in the podcast but did issue a statement, discussed in the podcast.
