NAACP Leaders Request County Support to Change State Flag

Local NAACP leaders are taking the fight to change the flag to our Coastal counties.
On February 2nd, they plan on attending board of supervisors meetings for Jackson, Harrison and Hancock counties. Officials say Mississippi’s flag is divisive as it currently stands and says removing the Confederate emblem will be a major step towards civil and economic progress.
Currently, Mississippi is the only state in the country to still fly the Confederate emblem in an official capacity on the state flag. NAACP of Moss Point and Jackson County Curley Clark hopes lawmakers and residents will support Initiative 58 to make changes.
