The Robert E. Lee monument on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Va.

The lore of the Civil War has transfixed professional and amateur historians for decades. But to some, interest in history can cross a line. Can Washingtonians engage with the region’s Confederate history without glorifying past ills? Kojo sits down with a Civil War reenactor with a “bias for the Confederacy” and a scholar of African American history.

Guests

  • Robert Lee Hodge Civil War reenactor, subject of "Confederates In The Attic"
  • Marcia Chatelain Assistant Professor, Department of History at Georgetown University; @DrMChatelain
