An interview with Vicksburg, Mississippi mayoral candidate, Shawn Jackson

Fourth-generation Mississippian and Cornell graduate Shawn Jackson is running for Mayor of Vicksburg. Vicksburg was the site for a critical battle in the Civil War. Mississippi’s 40 percent Black voting base passed Measure 2 in November 2020, possibly putting one of the final nails in the coffin of the 1890 Mississippi Plan. Currently, Vicksburg is a port city with historical roots, charms, and challenges.

Public Intellectuals Radio host Teka Lo interviews Shawn Jackson to find out her plans and visions for Vicksburg and Mississippi, the next Southern state that will flip Blue in 2024.
