In response to the recent church shootings in Charleston, South Carolina, the Confederate flag is coming down from that state’s Capitol. What about Lexington’s symbols of slavery? Are they our heritage or an opportunity to spread racism? Next Tuesday, July 7th, at 6 pm, the Carnegie Center will host a town hall-style forum on what should be done about the controversial symbols, sites, and statues that remain here in Lexington.
The free forum will feature a panel of experts, and the public is invited to comment or question.
