The state flag was taken down yesterday in a ceremony on campus after the Faculty Senate and student leaders called for its removal.

The Ole Miss NAACP says next they want the monument to Confederate war dead removed from Lyceum Circle. The monument has the Confederate battle flag on it.

The NAACP also plans on calling for the renaming of several buildings on campus in the interest of diversity.
