A Message From Our President

Judson Robinson III • President and CEO

Don't remove Houston's Confederate statues. Put them in context.

"By their nature, monuments express an aspiration. They suppress the messy and complex motivations of history, aiming to memorialize the past and, in the process, give form to some virtue, and a boost to that virtue in the political and social future. The Lincoln Memorial, for example, expresses the aspiration that a united country, after its devastating civil war, live out its "new birth of freedom" and achieve a more pure government of, by and for the people. Political passions of the moment, any moment, have an even greater tendency to simplify attitudes towards the complex legacies of the past. They easily polarize around already simplified public imagery. We see that tendency in the current conflicts over monuments, the Confederate memorials that dot the South, including here in Houston."
