Confederate Flag Controversy, Louisiana Legend Terry Bradshaw, Baton Rouge Irish Film Festival

Confederate Flag Controversy (07:22) Racially motivated violence in Charleston, SC, has prompted state governments around the South to reevaluate the display of the Confederate battle flag on public grounds. Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans is calling for input on the removal of the Civil War memorials as the city prepares for its tri-centennial. Is the display of Civil War statues in public justified or do they belong only in museums? This month’s Louisiana Public Square looks for answers. SHARE

Louisiana Legend Terry Bradshaw (14:53) As baseball season continues through the dog days of summer and fans are beginning to count down to the start of the football season, the LDMA (Louisiana Digital Media Archive) is highlighting sports legends in Louisiana throughout the month of July. This week we highlight NFL Hall of Fame quarterback and Shreveport native Terry Bradshaw. Before he won four Super Bowl trophies for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bradshaw was turning heads in college at Louisiana Tech in Ruston. SHARE

Baton Rouge Irish Film Festival (27:48) Next weekend marks the 7th Annual Baton Rouge Irish Film Festival. Dozens of movies will be featured at venues across the city including the Celtic Media Centre movie studios. Charlie Whinham and photographer Rex Q. Fortenberry previews of some of the coming attractions. SHARE
