Charleston Tragedy Sparks Renewed Debate on Confederate Flag

Jun 24, 2015

  In the wake of the shootings at Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church, a renewed effort has arisen to remove the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the State House. Among those calling for its removal is Gov. Nikki Haley, but there remain prominent South Carolinians on both sides of the issue. Today we hear from two of them: State Representative Jonathan Hill of Anderson, a republican who represents House District 8, and the Rev. Nelson Rivers IIL, long time Civil Rights activist and Vice President of Religious Affairs and External Relations for the National Action Network.
