Structural racism and sexism at Virginia Military Institute were heavily scrutinized in 2020 and 2021, leading to leadership changes at the school.

In "Sounds Like Hate," a podcast from the Southern Poverty Law Center, Jamila Paksima and Yvonne Latty explore how VMI’s confederate roots are felt by the students and graduates of today.

The first two episodes, both on the culture at VMI, are available this week wherever you listen to podcasts.
