Mississippians for Reparations (MFR) sponsors a town hall meeting tonight, Feb. 2, from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Fresh Start Christian church (5426 Manhattan Rd., Jackson). There, the praised documentary "The Untold Story of Emmett Till," produced by Keith Beauchamp will be shown; following that, a public discussion about the film, and other community concerns will take place. This is a historical and cultural event, you don't want to miss.
I saw the documentary. It was a good piece. I'll try to shoot by for a minute to check out things. I don't ever expect any reparations though. If I'm ever offered dime I'm looking for Jesus to say hello and thanks. "Soon" will have finally arrived.
