This week, we talk to activists as they mark the removal of the Confederate “Johnny Reb” statue in front of the Albemarle County Courthouse. Plus, COVID-19 has been found in four dorms at the University of Virginia. If that’s not enough news for one week, Charlottesville is also getting a new city manager. Stick around for our final segment, where we sit down with the folks at Live Arts to talk about their upcoming entirely virtual season of community theater.
The statue is lowered during the removal of the "At Ready" Confederate Statue on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020. The statue, nicknamed "Johnny Rebel", was loaded onto a truck mid-morning and driven to the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation in Waynesboro.
