Dr. Wes Bellamy will release his personal memoir "Monumental: It Was Never About a Statue", which examines what took place before, during, and after the events of August 2017 from his perspective.

The memoir started as a form of therapy for Dr. Bellamy.

He says he expects the book will get some negative reactions from the public.

“I haven’t had the opportunity to be able to tell my side of how everything transpired. Again, for better or worse some people think I’m the one who got a lot of this stuff started but it's bigger than just myself. It's really about a community coming together and being able to overcome adversity and empower ourselves to beat and defeat white supremacy.” Bellamy says.

"Monumental: It Was Never About a Statue" will be available on Jan. 1, 2019.
