New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu knows that race is hard to talk about, but he thinks it’s important to do it anyway. In fact, he recently put himself on the map with a powerful speech backing the removal of Confederate monuments in his city. Mayor Landrieu sits down with us at the Aspen Ideas Festival to delve into the history and context behind his now-famous remarks. We also discuss climate change in the Big Easy, the role of cities in the Trump era, and why Mayor Landrieu still wishes he could be a Broadway star.
