The 7th annual Burn and Bury Confederate Flag will be hosted by John Sims and feature Reverend Hannah Hooks, pastor at Shorter Chapel AME Church-Giddings, Texas; Chas Moore, co-founder of the Austin Justice Coalition; performance artist Dragonfly; poet/writer Brooke Elise Axtell; and musician Mocha Washburn. A potluck cook reception sponsored De-Confederate Austin will follow.

In 2015, Sims made a national call to burn and bury Confederate flags in response to the Charleston Nine Murders, to confront the legacy of American slavery and honor the memory of social justice soldiers who fought against slavery, for Civil Rights, and fight against current institutional and cultural white supremacy. This led to the creation of the annual Burn and Bury Memorial Day event, The Burn and Bury Video Anthem and a Burn and Bury Confederate Flag Support Kit. This annual performance seeks to create a new ritual for all Americans to engage in a moment and space of healing and transformation.
