From the removal of a statue of King George III in New York in 1776 to today’s removal of Confederate statues and monuments, the United States has had a long history of “reckoning” with memorials, monuments, and other forms of public art deemed oppressive, shameful, hateful, or simply “out of sync” with present day values and ideals. Erika Doss, professor of American studies at the University of Notre Dame, traces how, why, and when Americans target public art, and the dilemmas of dissent and historical accountability in public culture.

Generation Rap is black teen radio talk show on Hot 103 Jamz every Saturday at 8am. KC high school teens choose their own topics, produce the show, host the show, and discuss the topic live and openly on KPRS to facilitate entry into higher education and a sometimes unwelcoming adult world. Each topic must be accompanied by a professional in the field or someone very knowledgeable about the subject matter. Tune in to support every Saturday or follow them @GenerationRap on Instagram and Twitter
