Washington Post: Two women lead a free tour of Charlottesville’s Confederate monuments each month. A new website lets everyone listen.. “Once a month, the two African American women walk to the former slave auction block in Charlottesville. They stand before a crowd that often numbers in the dozens. University of Virginia professor Jalane Schmidt gestures toward the ground, pointing out a small concrete marker, flush with the brick sidewalk, that declares: ‘On this site, slaves were bought and sold.’ Beside her, Andrea Douglas, executive director of the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, clears her throat. ith that, the tour — which will stretch for roughly 90 minutes and take attendees through the history and legacy of Charlottesville’s embattled Confederate monuments — begins.”
