Julian Hayter, associate professor in the University of Richmond Jepson School of Leadership Studies, was one of several featured experts in the CBS 60 MINUTES segment, "The History and Future of Confederate Monuments." Hayter, who was appointed to Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney's Monument Avenue Commission in June 2017, spoke with correspondent Anderson Cooper in an interview at the University of Richmond and during a walk down Richmond's Monument Avenue.

"All these years later, the Civil War, in many ways, is still contested ground," said Hayter.

At the Jepson School, Hayter teaches classes such as Justice and Civil Society and Reimagining Richmond: History, Power, and Politics in the Former Capital of the Confederacy.

Watch the segment on 60 MINUTES.
