VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -
So many people are expected for the 'flag rally' that VSU will cancel class Friday.
Watch Colter Anstaett Live @ 5:00 on WALB.
The rally is response to the Black Panther demonstration last week in which the American flag was desecrated, and a female Veteran took the flag from them.
VSU issued this release-
