This is applicable to a couple of threads going on. IMO, this direct descendant of Lee would have more reason to feel pride or guilt in Lee's deeds than a random white person. OTOH, she is also somewhere around half black so sees that perspective as well. She manages to look at this without feeling pride or guilt, which is completely rational, as she is about 5 generations from Lee.
She brings up the good point that the statues glorifying Lee and others are revisionist themselves.
