On Second Thought for Tuesday, June 30, 2015: Headlee discusses the Confederate flag’s place in pop culture with Southern pop culture blogger and University of North Carolina history professor Karen Cox and Lakeyta Bonnette, a Georgia State University political science/Black political attitudes professor. Finally, for over a year, two filmmakers have been documenting people and places with strong ties to the Confederate Flag, including a black woman who proudly displays her flag for interesting reasons, a Georgia man who has an informal museum with racist memorabilia, and a one man launching a “Confederate rap battle.” Host Celeste Headlee talks to Logan Jaffe and Zach Segilko, the producers behind the ongoing online video series, “Battle Flag.” Listen to the entire podcast here
