February is Black History Month!
The City of Jackson is celebrating by honoring African American residents from Jackson's past and present.
Throughout February 2019, Assistant to the City Manager Amber Clark and Public Information Officer Aaron Dimick are posting information to the City website and social media that shed light on local African Americans who have made an impact locally and nationwide.
Some of the names and faces highlighted may be familiar, but we hope to bring a greater awareness to black history in Jackson by spotlighting unsung heroes in the community.
You can follow this dive into Jackson's history by visiting the City's website and following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
To further honor the month, Mayor Derek Dobies signed a proclamation that proclaims February, 2019 as Black History Month in the City of Jackson. Watch the video below to see the proclamation.
