JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Some Mississippi counties are debating whether to move Confederate monuments that have stood for decades outside courthouses or on other public property.
The potential changes are happening as Confederate monuments are being removed in some other states amid protests against racism.
On Monday, Washington County supervisors voted to find a new place for a monument. Forrest County supervisors voted to put the issue on the November ballot. A public hearing is set for next week about a Confederate monument in Lafayette County.
And, the state College Board could vote Thursday on a request to move a monument at the University of Mississippi.
