How the Monuments Came Down is a timely and searing look at the history of white supremacy and Black resistance in Richmond, Virginia. The feature-length film — brought to life by history-makers, descendants, scholars, and activists — reveals how monuments to Confederate leaders stood for more than a century, and why they fell.

Following the screening, stay tuned for a dynamic discussion led by Modupe Labode, a curator at the National Museum of American History, with Hannah Ayers and Lance Warren, who directed, produced, and edited the film; Christy S. Coleman, Executive Director of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation; and 2021 Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Michael Paul Williams of the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
