Publisher's Description

A mood of impending doom swept across the country in the spring of 2020 with the spread of Covid-19 and a sharp contraction of the economy. And then, like a thunderclap, the killing of George Floyd at the hands of the police in Minneapolis sent shock waves through the body politic. Protesters took to the streets nationwide, and Black Lives Matter became a rallying cry for a diverse cross-section of the public.

In Richmond, Virginia, demonstrations focused on Monument Avenue with its statues of Confederate generals. Having been born and raised in Virginia, I was aware of the debate surrounding these totems of the Confederacy, with some calling for their removal, and others, for some sort of historical contextualization.

But it became clear to me in early July that the end of the road was approaching for Monument Avenue. On July 10th, protesters toppled Jefferson Davis from his pedestal, and two days later I drove down to Richmond to document the last days of the grand boulevard of the Lost Cause.
