Virginia announces plans to hand over removed Confederate statues to Black History Museum

Virginia officials have announced plans to give removed Confederate statues to the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, including a massive statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee that was removed from Richmond earlier this year.

The initiative, announced by outgoing Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney (D), will let the Black History Museum work with The Valentine museum in Richmond and the local community to determine the fate of the monuments, The Associated Press reported.
