I spent this past weekend at the opening of the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival. Among the many films screening there are documentaries advocating for some official policy action. One of these films is a short documentary by Jet Wintzer about all of the statues, elementary schools and parks named after Albert Pike. Wintzer makes a strong case in the film, National Scars: The Albert Pike Monuments, that we should not be using Pike’s name on these nor should we use public funds to maintain them. The film is good, but there is more that can be done to advance the director’s cause.
