In this webinar from September 21, 2022, EV editor Patti Miller talks with Adam Dean, PhD, professor of History at the University of Lynchburg, and Ashley Spivey, PhD, a member of the Pamunkey Indian Tribe and executive director of Kenah Consulting. They explore the origins and impact of the Virginia History and Textbook Commission, which sought to impose the Lost Cause version of slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction on students, while erasing Virginia Indian history.
