In June 2016, it was announced that the plaque in front of the Confederate Statue in the Circle on the Ole Miss campus would be replaced with a new plaque after receiving input from various organizations such as the local chapter of the NAACP and Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter. Earlier today, the old plaque was taken down and the new plaque was officially erected in its place. Vitter announced the official language of the new plaque via email to students and faculty back in June. The new plaque can be seen in the photo below.
