Ideas on Tap: "Emerging Mississippi" in Media


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Join the Mississippi Humanities Council, the Women's Foundation of Mississippi, and Rethink Mississippi on April 24 at Hal and Mal's-Jackson, MS for the fourth and final installment of our spring series "Emerging Mississippi."

On April 24, we'll be discussing media and news coverage in Mississippi in the 21st century. We'll discuss how news is disseminated, how people choose to receive their news, the approach that young reporters take in order to cover or report on issues, and their connection to the issues on which they're reporting. Panelists include Larrison Campbell from Mississippi Today, Arielle Dreher from the Jackson Free Press, Beau York from Podastery, and Bracey Harris from the Clarion Ledger. Chellese Hall, Communications Manager for the Woodward Hines Education Foundation, will moderate.

This program will take place with support from the The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation's "Democracy and the Informed Citizen" initiative in conjunction with the Federation of State Humanities Councils.
