Duke University Decides to Leave Former Site of Robert E. Lee Memorial Vacant

A year after removing the statue, Duke University decides to leave the site of the former Confederate monument empty to “provide a powerful statement about the past, the present and our values.”
With the unanimous support of the Board of Trustees, newly instated University President, Vincent E. Price, ordered the statue be removed, which it was on August 19, 2017. In his public statement about the decision, Price wrote the statue would “be preserved so that students can study Duke’s complex past and take part in a more inclusive future.” He also announced the creation of a Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Center, led by Charmaine Royal, associate professor of African and African American studies, biology and community and family medicine.

absolute power depends on absolute control over knowledge, which in turn necessitates absolute corruption

Think about this

“Politicians, Priests, and psychiatrists often face the same problem: how to find the most rapid and permanent means of changing a man’s belief…The problem of the doctor and his nervously ill patient, and that of the religious leader who sets out to gain and hold new converts, has now become the problem of whole groups of nations, who wish not only to confirm certain political beliefs within their boundaries, but to proselytize the outside world.” – William Sargant “Battle of the Mind”
