New Jackson Mississippi Mayor: Chokwe Lumumba. Jackson Hell Yes!

Chokwe Lumumba wins the mayoral seat in the Southern city of Jackson Mississippi, in the hometown where courageous Mississippi civil rights leader Medgar Evers  was gunned down on June 12th 1963 at his home.

Ms. Nina Simone you are probably up there singing hallelujah today instead of Mississippi Goddamn back in 1965 give or take a year!

Looks like the white Republicans threw their money away by mostly backing  young Black businessman Jonathan Lee. Sorry Jonathan, not this election.

About artikleblak

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
