CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) – Virginia Councilman, Dr. Wes Bellamy, made national news after leading efforts to remove statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson from city parks.

Dr. Bellamy is in the Lowcountry this weekend to discuss his book, “Monumental: It Was Never About A Statue.” He will discuss the similarities of Charleston and Charlottesville, how both cities have been rocked by racial tension and how the community must work together to truly deal with these issues.

The councilman will speak at the College of Charleston today at 2:00 PM.
