Slavery is fundamental to the American story. Monticello is simultaneously a place to remember, a place to mourn, and a place to inspire change. How can Monticello’s duality – the pain and beauty of one of America’s best-studied and preserved plantations – advance a national dialogue on race? What is the role of cultural monuments and sites in helping Americans learn from the past? Henry Louis Gates, Jr., moderates a discussion with Melody Barnes, Jamelle Bouie, Jon Meacham, and Bree Newsome.
