Washington National Cathedral Replacing Confederate Stained Glass Windows

(Washington, DC) — The Washington National Cathedral is replacing old Confederate stained glass windows with artwork from Kerry James Marshall. The former windows featuring Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson were removed in 2017 following the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. It will be Marshall’s first time working with the medium of stained glass and the new windows will have a racial justice theme. The window installation will be accompanied by a poem from author and scholar Dr. Elizabeth Alexander. The project is expected to be complete in 2023.
