Tony Harris, one of the co-founders of RVA Mag, recently sat down with The Cheats Movement Podcast to talk about the events of Unite the Right in Charlottesville, the ongoing debate over Confederate monuments, and what this means for the city of Richmond. RVA Mag was on the ground covering the events in Charlottesville. Our team of journalists, photographers, and videographers captured the violence of the moment as a way to document what modern white supremacy looks like.
It was an experience that not only left a deep impact on our team, but the entire Commonwealth, which is still struggling to make sense of the domestic terrorist attack that left one person dead and up to 30 wounded. Given that the debate over Confederate symbols is being used to accelerate modern white nationalist, supremacy, and alt-right messaging, Richmond will inevitably become the frontline of this conversation. In this podcast, we join with The Cheats Movement team to get the conversation started.
