When Longwood University communications studies professor Alec Hosterman began to photograph the first day of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in August 2017, he thought the photos would be material he could integrate into classroom discussions.
Instead, he wound up documenting the violent, far-right extremist event that became international news. His photos were later staged as an exhibit, “There’s Just Us,” at the Virginia Holocaust Museum. Five years later, the exhibition returned to the museum in July and continues through Dec. 30.
