A page initially dedicated to coverage of the debate over whether to remove Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s statue from Lee Park in Charlottesville has evolved to cover events that propelled Charlottesville into the national spotlight.

The coverage here includes the KKK rally in July of 2017, the torch-lit white supremacist rally at the University of Virginia Rotunda, and the Unite the Right rally on August 12, 2017.  We continue to document the aftermath - the mourning, the investigation, and the trials - as our community heals.
