Style Weekly continues to allow an error to stand in their Confederate culture list

Style Weekly Confederate culture list names school in Richmond (named for a leading educator of African-Americans) and lets it stand.

Endgame
If Richmond wanted to remove all references to Confederate figures from public property, what would have to go? The list may surprise you.

This from Wiki:

Dr. Davis died suddenly at his home in Cartersville, Virginia on April 15, 1947. In Henrico County, Virginia, Jackson Davis Elementary School, dedicated in 1962, was named for him.[2]

The Jackson Davis Collection of over 5,000 photographs and numerous manuscripts and documents was given to the Special Collections Department of the University of Virginia by his daughters and additional papers were late added by his granddaughters. The collection is located in the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia.[2]

The comments contain the truth, but they haven’t been noticed by the journalist(s) yet.
