A group of Virginia lawmakers will hit the Sunday news circuit this week to discuss the protests between white nationalists and counter-protesters that turned deadly in Charlottesville, Va., last year, hours before similar demonstrations will take place in Washington, D.C.

CBS's "Face the Nation" will host a special episode focused on race in the U.S. one year after Charlottesville, featuring Charlottesville's first black female mayor Nikuyah Walker, Sen.

Walker and Kaine are expected to discuss the challenges facing the Charlottesville community and the state of Virginia as they continue to grapple with last year's deadly protest. Scott, whom The Washington Post called "the GOP's conscience on race issues," will likely discuss issues of race.

Meanwhile, former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Va.), who served as Virginia's governor during last year's rallies, will join CNN's "State of the Union." McAuliffe might also discuss a potential 2020 presidential run.
