Student leaders at Ol Miss vote to remove Confederate symbols
Huffington Post -Student leaders at the University of Mississippi voted to remove the Mississippi state flag, which contains the Confederate battle emblem, from campus. Once the resolution is signed, it will be up to school administrators to act on it... "Seeing an institution with such an unpleasant history take steps toward progress can have an immense impact on the decisions of lawmakers," said Tysianna Marino, vice president of the University of Mississippi NAACP, prior to the vote. "We have the ability to show the nation Mississippi is not stagnant. We are ready for progress."
