About this Event

Futuro Media and Mississippi Today present this LIVE In The Thick show from Mississippi!

Join us for In The Thick LIVE about the 2020 Election and the POC vote from Jackson at The Alamo Theatre! Award-winning journalists and In The Thick co-hosts, Maria Hinojosa and Julio Ricardo Varela, are joined by R.L. (Ryan) Nave, Editor-in-Chief at Mississippi Today and president of The Jackson Association of Black Journalists, a chapter of NABJ and Arekia Bennett, Executive Director of Mississippi Votes.

Opening the show will be poet, Amanda Furdge.

Born and raised in Jackson and throughout the Delta of Mississippi, Amanda has over 10 solid years and counting as a nationally and internationally known spoken word poet and author. She’s also highly respected as a mother, community leader, writer and cultural/social influencer. She’ll be performing spoken word to open the live In The Thick show.

About the Live Show:

The last time a Democratic presidential candidate won Mississippi was 1976, and Mississippi continues to be a strongly Republican state. The system that Mississippi uses for statewide elections, other than U.S. senator, dates back to the Jim Crow era. Candidates must win both the popular vote and the majority of House districts, which basically guarantees that Republicans maintain power. Maria and Julio talk with local guests about the legacy of Jim Crow, voting rights and the POC vote in Mississippi.

This event is open to the public - RSVP to reserve your *free* seat!

Doors open at 5:30pm and live show recording will begin promptly at 6pm.

ALSO: Join us the following evening for a second live show about immigration and the 2020 Election! RSVP here.
