J.E.B. Stuart High School

J.E.B. Stuart High School

The Civil War ended more than 150 years ago, but today’s Washingtonians are still debating its causes, its heroes and what its legacy should look like in our region. In Falls Church, Va., the J.E.B. Stuart High School community is debating whether its namesake, a Confederate general, should have his name on the school. With one month until the local school board votes makes a decision, Kojo discusses the issues with a recent alum who rallied against the name, and a member of the community who wants to see it stay.
