Mitch Landrieu

Mitch Landrieu served as mayor of New Orleans from 2010-2018. During his second term, he gained national prominence for advocating and overseeing the removal of four Confederate monuments in New Orleans, a historical and powerful decision that earned him the prestigious John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. In his New York Times bestselling book, In the Shadow of Statues: A White Southerner Confronts History, Landrieu recounts his personal journey on race and tackles the broader history of slavery, race relations, and institutional inequalities that still plague America.
