The Flag and the Fury
How do you actually make change in the world? For 126 years, Mississippi has had the Confederate battle flag on their state flag, and they were the last state in the nation where that emblem remained "officially" flying.  A few days ago, that flag came down.

Kiese Laymon's memoir Heavy is here. And the Hospitality Flag webpage is here.
