Racist Monuments In Bay Ridge

An episode over two years in the making! Join Dan and our guest John Hagan, a local social studies teacher, as we analyze our local racist monuments. Yes, Bay Ridge is host to multiple Confederate monuments. How did they get here? Why are they still up? And why should we tear them down? Find out!

We'll expose a never-before-discovered history involving the United Daughters of the Confederacy, greedy Rectors, and a  Lost Cause mythology. Along the way we'll talk about cool Union Generals, Thurgood Marshall's connection to Bay Ridge, and why Robert E Lee disliked living in Brooklyn. As we go, John will connect our local happenings to a broader context of Reconstruction, resurgent racism, and Jim Crow.

By the end of the show, you'll be equipped to tear apart any argument for keeping these racist monuments standing!
