paperback book cover for "In the Shadow of Statues" and author photo of Mitch Landrieu

In May 2017, Mayor Mitch Landrieu addressed the people of New Orleans about his decision to take down four Confederate monuments in the city. His speech, which has been heard by millions, sparked a national conversation about the history of our nation and how best to confront our heritage.

In his book, "In The Shadow Of Statues: A White Southerner Confronts History," former Mayor Landrieu discusses the path he took to remove the Confederate monuments and traces his personal relationship to this history, tackling the broader history of slavery, race, and institutional inequality in America.

The book is now available in paperback.
