I understand that those statues caused members of the community to recall the terrible days of slavery. But in today’s article, it is mentioned that several of the old buildings may be retained for their historical value, specifically mentioning the warden’s office, where slaves and those who helped them were processed for incarceration.
Just as the statues of those who fought to preserve slavery may have caused some people pain, certainly the center for processing those slaves must have the same effect. And yet, we preserve one while removing the other. I am confused. If the statues cause hurt, and must go, why should the building that also represents slavery remain?
