Playing “Dixie” Banned At Arab Ball Games

No more playing Dixie at football games in Arab. The superintendent of Arab city schools is getting rid of the song. John Mullins says he made the decision because he says Dixie has negative connotations that conflicts with the system’s core values including unity. The Arab High School Band has played “Dixie” after decades when a touchdown is scored. Students and staff at the school will vote on a new fight song after this football season.
