As we experience this moment of intensity and uncertainty around public monuments—especially those that symbolize the enduring legacies of racial injustice and social inequality—we are reminded that we must find new, critical ways to reflect on the monuments we have inherited and imagine future monuments we have yet to build. This discussion about monuments will expand on the conversation coordinated by Mural Arts Philadelphia and Monument Lab.
