- "It's time for Mississippi to fly a flag for all its people" reads open letter
- These prominent voices already have several influential Mississippi politicians on their side
In what has become the latest variation on a recent, but familiar, theme, a prominent group of people signed a letter published Sunday in the Mississippi Clarion-Ledger
calling on Mississippi to change its flag.
"It's time for Mississippi to fly a flag for all its people," read the letter, printed as a full-page advertisement.
The Mississippi flag currently features an emblem of the Confederate Battle Flag in its top left corner, a symbol that has engendered no shortage of controversy.
