Teenagers took center stage at Jackson’s first Youth Mayoral Forum on Monday, April 17, in the Provine High School auditorium. Seven candidates appeared at the two-hour forum, including Mayor Tony Yarber, Sen. John Horhn, attorney Chokwe Lumumba, Ronnie Crudup Jr. and
Hinds Supervisor Robert Graham.
Jackson Council PTA and the Mississippi Youth Media Project are hosting the forum with a 15-year-old Jim Hill High School student, Maisie Brown, as the moderator, and a four-student YMP panel asking questions. Those students are Shakira Porter and Dartavius Archie of Wingfield High School; Kenytta Brown of Lanier High School; and Maggie Jefferis of Murrah High School.
UPDATE: We just learned that The Clarion-Ledger featured the Youth Mayoral Forum prominently on its front page Tuesday.
