The events of the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, have left a lasting impression on the nation. For those who lived in the city for years before it became synonymous with Nazis and torches, it will never be the same. The New York Times' coverage of the aftermath provides a summary of what happened and how it has changed the city. Charlottesville is located in Central Virginia, approximately 100 miles southwest of Washington, D.
C., and 70 miles northwest of Richmond, Virginia. It was here that the deadly “Unite the Right” demonstration took place a year ago. This was supposed to be a time when extreme right ideologies could come together and feel real popular political power. The consequences of this event have been far-reaching.
It has marked the end of innocence, exceptionalism and tolerance for many Americans. It has also highlighted the fact that someone in the White House thought there were two sides to this issue and no one else in the White House stopped him. In response to these events, the Jon L. Hagler Foundation was established by Jon and Jo Ann Hagler.
Through this foundation, access to exclusive information and early alerts about documentaries and research is provided. It is clear that Charlottesville officials have made some important political decisions in response to these events. These decisions have had a lasting impact on the city and its citizens, as well as on the nation as a whole.
