Orderlyforlee Podcast: Al Arnold, Host, Orderlyforlee, takes on his own personal journey surrounding the Confederate Flag, the State flag of Mississippi and Black Confederate Heritage. Orderlyforlee was rejected as a guest speaker by a prominent Black church in Jackson Mississippi after they invited him months in advance to speak on family heritage. He walks us through that experience. The Modern Black man's journey clashes with popular culture in s heated moment in time surrounding Confederate Heritage. . Orderlyforlee details his journey into the depths of his Christian faith through tangible experiences within his community.
An interview with Deborah Simpson, African American proponent of Mississippi's Initiative 62 opens the dialogue of Grace, Race and Confederate Heritage.
The Mississippi initiative 62 is a measure that seeks to amend the Mississippi Constitution to recognize the flag adopted by the state legislature in 1894, as the official state flag of Mississippi. The measure would also mandate that the official flag be flown at all state institutions and agencies.
