State of the City Address 2019 – Jackson
Feb 20 @ 6:30 pm
State of the City Address 2019 - Jackson

Last year, Mayor Derek Dobies was the first Mayor of Jackson to deliver a State of the City Address. That tradition continues in 2019, with the second annual State of the City taking place at the Martin Luther King Community Center on Wednesday, February 20.

Jackson residents are welcome to attend this event. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with the program starting at 6:30 p.m.

The Martin Luther King Community Center is located at 1107 Adrian St. in Jackson. Unlike last year’s State of the City, tickets WILL NOT be required for entry.

Mayor Dobies says for this year’s speech, he intends to reflect on goals for Jackson laid out last year, and set new priorities. The mayor says he chose the Martin Luther King Community Center as this year’s State of the City venue to highlight ongoing efforts to reinvest in Jackson’s south side neighborhood.

If you cannot attend, you can watch a livestream of the address on the The City of Jackson, Michigan Facebook page.

Her quest for beauty and her passion for excellence did not escape the attention of the MacArthur Foundation, who awarded Regina their prestigious fellowship “genius” grant.

African American Read-In Chain - Jackson

When: Saturday, February 23rd from 12-2pm

Where: Meijer Branch of the Jackson District Library – 2699 Airport Rd. Jackson, MI

What: We will join the chain of more than 6 million participants sharing stories by African American authors. Concert by Kevin Collins and His Kuungana African Drum & Dance Company

Jackson District Library and the Jackson branch of the NAACP will host Jackson’s first ever African American Read-In Chain. This celebration of diverse literature will occur at the Meijer Branch of the Jackson District Library 12-2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23.

Jackson County residents of all ages and nationalities are invited to this free event. Attendees can sign-up to read material from an African American author. For the finale, Flint-based performers, Kevin Collins and His Kuungana African Drum & Dance Company, will entertain audiences with an energetic and vibrant performance celebrating African American heritage.

“It’s not only important that African Americans of all ages see themselves represented through literature,” said Rhonda Farrell-Butler, JDL community engagement coordinator. “It is also a window for others to look through and become more educated and appreciative of the diverse world we live in.

“Since its inception in 1990, this celebration of African American authors has opened a whole new world of literary appreciation,” she added. “Self-identification in literature is an amazing motivator to read and write.”

Read-Ins can be found throughout the country at schools, churches, bookstores, and libraries. The purpose of these events is the prioritization of literacy during Black History Month. The celebrations typically include the sharing and reading of texts written by African American authors, poetry slams, musical performances, and more. Community leaders and heroes are frequently featured.

The National African American Read-In was established by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English in 1990 and is America’s oldest event celebrating diversity in literature. Since it’s beginning, this event has reached more than six million participants globally.

The National Council of Teachers of English is an advocacy group dedicated to improving the education of language arts at all levels. To learn more about the council, visit http://www2.ncte.org/.
