Unit Two: Essay Assignment

For years, Confederate memorabilia has fallen into and out of popularity, and  Native American based mascots and sports teams have been chosen for re-development.  Of course it is a combination of reasons:  sectional racism, political correctness, popular heritage, cultural shifts, familial patriotism, alumni pride.

Find three different memorials or sports teams (not necessarily Confederate or Native American) that are currently being discussed for demolition or removal.

  • Explain the history of monument.
  • Why is it being challenged?
  • What are possible alternatives to destruction?
