Grassroots protests in Baltimore and New Orleans led to the removal of confederate statues prominently displayed in both cities. What is to become of these empty pedestals? Who should decide? How?

This panel will discuss the process of protest and removal as it took place in Baltimore and New Orleans. Both cities are grappling with choices around what's next. In Baltimore, the focus will be on the former confederate monument in Wyman Park Dell, dedicated this year as Harriet Tubman Grove. Bryan C. Lee, Jr. of Colloqate Design will discuss how the process of protest is leading to a rethinking of what and who the city of New Orleans memorializes.
