Two Mississippi universities removed state flags from campus over its controversial embedded Confederate emblem. They join five other Mississippi public colleges that have removed the flag. Only one remains.

Roland Martin battled Ken Reed, a White Lives Matter activist, over its protest at the NAACP headquarters in Houston.

KSEE-TV reports the two officers involved are on administrative leave. This is the seventh police-involved shooting in Fresno this year.

Much has changed, but a lot has stayed the same since tragedy unfolded a year ago at "Mother" Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

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 monument, which has stood in its place since 1895, won't be put away forever -- the statue will be moved to another location, University President James Ramsey confirmed in an announcement with Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer on Friday.

Lyrics from the song (including those calling Northerners "scum") will be replaced with a poem by John T. White about the state's appearance and natural beauty.

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.

After disagreeing on a $5.3 million commission for the flag and repairs for the museum, a $3.6 million budget was considered.

Loretta Lynch's confirmation as attorney general was a pivotal moment in American history.
