After hearing Mayor Landrieu’s speech at the occasion of the removal of Confederate statues in May 2017, I knew I wanted to hear more of his story. He speaks and writes very logically and effectively to help us understand what has been an emotionally charged question for some people.
Although I am often tempted to see this issue as “not my problem”, the book makes it clear that we all need to understand the true history and meaning of these memorials as well as how we can take other the steps that can be taken to make our cities more open and successful.
His story as a second generation mayor coming from a working class background is inspiring. I’d like to hear more stories like his and I would also like to hear more from him...or more like him...his intelligence and bravery are needed in our country.
An excellent plus in the audio book is a recording of his “Monuments” speech.
