More than 2,000 memorials in the United States valorize the Confederacy, a secessionist government that waged war to preserve white supremacy and the enslavement of millions of people. Erected as part of an organized propaganda campaign to terrorize African American communities, these memorials distort the past by promoting the Lost Cause narrative. Explore our resources to find out more about the history of Confederate monuments and what you can do to help remove these symbols of hate and white supremacy from your community.
