America ReFramed: Meltdown in Dixie
Premieres on SO PBS World Tuesday, June 8 at 5 p.m.
In the wake of the 2015 Charleston Massacre, a battle erupts in Orangeburg, South Carolina between the Sons of Confederate Veterans and an ice cream shop owner forced to fly the Confederate flag in his parking lot. Meltdown in Dixie explores the broader role of Confederate symbolism in the 21st century and the lingering racial oppression which these symbols help maintain.
