Documentary series takes on the troubled history of the Battle Flag

It certainly wasn’t planned. When Curious City’s Logan Jaffe and collaborator Zachary Sigelko decided to do a series of Web video vignettes of people talking about their relationship to the Confederate battle flag, they had no idea that what has been a simmering controversy in certain parts of the country would turn into a vigorous boil of a national conversation. But the racially motivated killings in South Carolina last week have done just that. Jaffe and Sigelko share the story of their project, the people they’ve profiled so far, and where they want to take it next.(Flickr/Jim Surkamp)
