Encyclopedia Virginia Presents: Who Controls the Past: The Virginia History and Textbook Commission

Encyclopedia Virginia’s Entry Point presents editor Patti Miller in conversation with Adam Dean, Ph.D., John M. Turner Distinguished Chair in the Humanities and professor of History at the University of Lynchburg, and Ashley Spivey, Ph.D., a member of the Pamunkey Indian Tribe and executive director of Kenah Consulting. They explore the origins and impact of the Virginia History and Textbook Commission, which sought to impose the “Lost Cause” version of slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction on Virginia students.
