The report states that a VCU student in film studies foiled an effort to deface the Jefferson Davis monument in Richmond.
The report quickly circulated to a number of places, including Kevin Levin’s Civil War Memory. Kevin, as you should know, has protested the defacement of Confederate monuments before, including an incident in Charlottesville. So, like any responsible person looking for something outside of a single report, he looked for other accounts and supporting evidence, including police reports, newspaper accounts, other images … anything.
So far he’s found nothing.
Help Kevin out. This story certainly deserves a lot of attention.
