Mitch Landrieuthe Mayor of New Orleans made an epic speech on racism and historical revisionism in New Orleans, that applies to all of America. Landrieu made this speech in the context of the protests he is getting because of his decision to remove Confederate themed statues from his city.  That this speech was given by a Southern Politician, in a State where Donald Trump won by 20%,  can be taken as a hopeful sign that at least a dialogue has begun regarding slavery, segregation and racial prejudice.  This is a must listen if you are concerned, as I am,  with equal justice and rights for all Americans.
