Summary
"There is a difference between remembrance of history and reverence for it." When Landrieu addressed the people of New Orleans in May 2017 about his decision to take down four Confederate monuments, he struck a nerve nationally. Here he discusses his personal journey on race as well as the path he took to making the decision to remove the monuments; tackles the broader history of slavery, race and institutional inequities that still bedevil America; and traces his personal relationship to this history. -- adapted from jacket
