Telephone lines and social media were open for viewer comments on a question related to the one-year anniversary of a white nationalist protest against the removal of a Charlottesville, Virginia, Confederate monument: “What is the state of race relations in your community?” At that protest, violence broke out, and a man drove his car into counter-protestors, killing one person. A “Unite the Right 2” rally was happening later in the day in Washington, D.C., to mark the anniversary as well as a “D.C. United Against Hate” counterprotest.

A Charlottesville public radio journalist spoke via Skype about activities related to the protests and the state of race relations in her city. Four professors were also interviewed on Skype about the state of race relations in their states and city of California, Minnesota, Missouri, and New York City. close
