        How to Discuss the History of White Nationalism with Your Students | PBS NewsHour

        Three people died and multiple people were injured in the chaos of a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017. A judge ordered 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr. be held without bond on second-degree murder charges. Fields was accused of ramming his car into a crowd of demonstrators who came out against the white nationalist rally to denounce a Charlottesville city decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. President Donald Trump faced criticism from the left and right alike when he didn’t name neo-Nazi or white supremacist groups for inciting the attacks until two days after the events took place. He instead denounced violence — quote — “on many sides.”
