A public school in Mississippi named after prominent Confederate figure Jefferson Davis was recently renamed after former President Barack Obama. The school argues the name change is meant to reflect the ideals consistent with those of the students, parents, and faculty. Many have applauded the name change―the school is 98 percent African American, and who better than our first black president to replace an infamous slave owner. But others believe the name change erases our history. What do you think? 🏫
