Richmond's new take on Robert E. Lee Favorite 


Jun 5 2020


Richmond, VA

Over the winter break, I was actually able to see the recently re-decorated Robert E. Lee statue in Richmond, Virginia. After the height of the Black Lives Matter Protests over the past summer, it couldn’t be torn down, but it was fully wrapped with protest art. All phrases and slogans (such as Black Trans Lives Matter, ACAB, Etc.) were in full display over the statue of the infamous Confederate General.

Timeframe For change


The statue still stands in this condition after all these months, so its clear that thing will never go back to the status quo. Most likely, the statue will be torn down and no new ones rebuilt in his name or others like him.
