On KEEP HOPE ALIVE with REV. JESSE JACKSON Radio Show NOW
Let’s talk about the removal of the Confederate Flag from the South Carolina Statehouse where it has waved and stood guard since 1961—in the midst of the rising tide of the Civil Rights Movement…

The Confederate Flag is such a powerful symbol of the Confederacy—of White power and resistance to the end of slavery, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights Movement, voting rights and equal rights—and “liberty and justice for all”—that Friday’s lowering of that Flag was a day that many thought would never come…

Indeed, it took several yanks from a crane to remove the 30-foot pole upon which the “Rebel Flag” flew…

But, the fact is that this Confederate Flag and the struggle to remove it is long and storied…

Down through the decades, many have tried and many have failed to remove this Flag from the SC Statehouse…

But, everything changed after the CHARLESTON MASSACRE on June 17, 2015…

Or, at least SOMETHING changed…What CHANGED? What hasn’t CHANGED? What else needs to CHANGE?

Let’s talk about the Confederate Flag—and the American Flag—and the continuing struggle to make our Union “more perfect”…
