Mississippi Dumps Flag 6.28.20 Rogelio V. Solis AP

The state legislature of Mississippi has approved a measure abolishing the state flag, with its image of the stars and bars of the Confederate States of America, and the Republican governor says he will sign it. Mississippi is the last U.S. state to remove the racist symbol from its flag; it was once a constant reminder in many of the Southern states. Now the last holdout has capitulated. (Rogelio V. Solis/AP)
