Retiring the Mississippi State Flag: One Attorney’s Push and Perspective

Diversity and Inclusion

Join us as we chat with Jackson partner John Lassiter and he tells the story of his involvement in the retirement of Mississippi’s state flag.

Born and raised in Mississippi, John regarded getting Mississippi’s state flag as an impossible task in a State with a history riddled with racial division, fear and deep-seeded politics.

Listen to John talk about the effects the old flag had on the state’s economy and his idea to place NCAA sports at the center of the case for change.
