Time for a Change
American Politics | Journalism Studies
Should Mississippi still be represented in the U.S. Capitol’s National Statuary Hall by two 19th century figures who were prominent in the secessionist movement? Or is it time for the state to honor more modern 20th century leaders? The Overby Center for Southern Journalism and Politics hosted the program revisiting Jefferson Davis and J.Z. George: U.S. Capitol Relics? Overby Center chairman Charles Overby is joined in the discussion by William “Brother” Rogers, president of the Mississippi Historical Society, and Marvin King, associate professor of political science and African American Studies at the University of Mississippi.
