About this Episode


“We’ve got to explore why symbols even matter in the first place. What’s the story behind our flag? If the argument that keeps getting brought up is heritage versus hate, what is the heritage of Mississippi? What is the hate of Mississippi? Because we’ve got to know where we’ve been to know how we move forward.”
