I will be talking about Confederate flags direct from the NEA RA on WBAI radio Monday morning.


I’m not sure who expected that race and racism, the Confederate flag and Confederate war memorials would take center stage at the annual Representative Assembly of the National Education Association in Orlando.

But it has.

Following Friday’s vote to adopt New Business Item B on the fight against institutional racism, Saturday featured a two hour debate over the display of the Confederate flag and Confederate symbols.

The debate produced the largest number of “requests for information,” a parliamentary maneuver that allows argument and debate by other means, in the history of 153 years of Representative Assemblies.

It was in response to my New Business Item 11 on Confederate flags and symbols.

I will be interviewed on WBAI’s Morning Show hosted by Michael G. Haskins and Jed Brandt on Monday, July 6th at 7AM EDT.

The show is live-streamed on the internet.
