A protest over Confederate monuments that the Southern Poverty Law Center says is “shaping up to be the largest hate-gathering of its kind in decades” is scheduled for this weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia. It’s the latest development in a series of incidents and debates across the nation of what to do with symbols honoring the Confederate South.
