The Battle over Shockoe Bottom
A battle is taking place in its capital city over Shockoe Bottom – one of Richmond’s most historic downtown districts. On one side are community members fighting for recognition of the city’s past with slavery. On the other side are powerful business leaders and developers who want to build a sports stadium, entertainment venue, and high-end condos and lofts. From Richmond, Virginia, FSRN’s Catherine Komp reports.
