Confederate Flag

Mississippi is the only state in the United States that continues to fly a Confederate emblem on its flag and the fight to bring it down has reached the nation's capital.

The ongoing Confederate flag controversy has made its way to the courts of Mississippi, where Attorney Carlos Moore has filed a federal lawsuit against Governor Phil Bryant to strip the Mississippi flag of the Confederate symbol.

Among the honorees were Misty Copeland, Caitlyn Jenner, the U.S women's soccer team, family members and survivors of the Charleston Massacre, Reese Witherspoon, Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Holmes and Cecile Richards.
