Listeners weigh in on Confederate flags and St. Pete’s history of lynching

Share

On this episode of MidPoint we aired WMNF reporter Samuel Johnson’s new report on the history of lynching in St. Petersburg. It’s called Historical amnesia about lynching in St. Petersburg: the John Evans plaque. Listeners weighed in on that, on the shooting in Charleston and the Confederate battle flags that fly on the grounds of the South Carolina state Capitol and near a major interstate junction near Tampa.
