Host Jon D. Brown speaks with Ace Callwood and Dr. Reginald K. Ellis to discuss Confederate statues and monuments. This interview is the July 7th edition of the Black Men’s Health Summer Lunch Series.

We’re back at it again at 12 noon EDT today/Thursday with Dr. Reginald K. Ellis, Assistant Dean and Associate Professor of History and African-American Studies at Florida A&M University, and also welcoming back Ace Callwood, Managing Partner of Equal Sons.

In following up with Ace from a recent discussion, we wanted to talk more about these “participation trophies” that he previously mentioned. We’re taking a deep dive into the then, now, and history of confederate statues and monuments, and other musings about navigating this discussion in this brave old/new world.
