Episode #5707 Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

Every once in a while, an event strikes at the core of American society. The Charlottesville, Virginia protest that turned into a violent melee is one of those defining moments.
*White nationalists gathered for the "Unite the Right" rally ostensibly to protect a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. However, over the course of two days, tiki torch-carrying participants shouted racist and anti-Semitic messages and clashed with counter-protestors. It made people question America's values. It sparked debates about racism, anti-Semitism, justice, and the power to conquer hate. It united a community in song to honor the people killed. And it tested America's leaders.
*President Trump's initially tepid response turned into a week of equivocation about who was to blame. Business leaders bolted from White House jobs councils. Some Republicans distanced themselves from the president. But everyone was united in condemnation of the hate groups who started the violence.
*The hatred the nation saw in Charlottesville did not begin with Charlottesville. It will not end with Charlottesville either.
*Robert Costa will discuss what led to the violence in Charlottesville, how elected officials responded and where America goes next with:
*Geoff Bennett of NPR
*Shawna Thomas of VICE News
*Michael Scherer of TIME Magazine
*Molly Ball of The Atlantic
