The Voice of Business: Judge Reuben Anderson Discusses the Redesigned Mississippi State Flag

Sep 5, 2020

MEC President and CEO Scott Waller interviews Judge Reuben Anderson, one of the most respected leaders in the state of Mississippi. Judge Anderson, a past MEC chairman, was the first African-American to serve on the Mississippi Supreme Court. Most recently he chaired the Committee to Redesign the Mississippi State Flag. Judge Anderson oversaw the nine-member committee that in two months reviewed more than 3,000 submissions for the new flag after the old flag was retired July 1. The committee’s choice, the In God We Trust Flag, will be on the ballot in November. Should it receive a majority of the votes, the design will become the new state flag. Truly a landmark day in Mississippi.
