Text by Margaret Blanchard, Video by Wes Unruh - 8/6/2018


This weekend marks a year since VICE correspondent Elle Reeve and team reported from the frontlines as neo-Nazi supporters occupied Charlottesville’s Emancipation Park, protesting the removal of Confederate monuments. The resulting Vice News Tonight on HBO story “Charlottesville: Race & Terror” was honored with a 2017 Peabody Award for fearlessly ripping the mask off white supremacists.
