Monumental: It Was Never About a Statue with Dr. Wes Bellamy

April 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free
Monumental: It Was Never About a Statue

Monumental: It Was Never About a Statue, the new memoir from Dr. Wes Bellamy, explores the abhorrently violent and explicitly racist motivations behind the Charlottesville Riots of 2017. Dr. Bellamy, former Vice-Mayor and Current Charlottesville City Councilor, invites you to step into his shoes and read what it felt like to be in the midst of a war for the soul of a community.

Travel with Dr. Bellamy, the only African-American city councilor at the time of the attack, on this deeply personal journey through a city fighting for equity, past and present. As his small Southern city dominated national and international headlines, Dr. Bellamy uses Monumental to cover the year leading up to the Charlottesville Riots and the year after.
