Happy 4th of July from the City With Soul!
Last week, the Board of Directors of Visit Jackson issued a joint statement saying, in part, that, “Replacing the (state) flag will expand economic growth, increase the possibilities for corporate and educational recruitment, and instill hope in our communities.”

On Sunday, June 28, around 6 p.m., the Mississippi State Senate passed a majority measure (following a similar vote in the Mississippi House of Representatives) to decommission the 1894 Mississippi State Flag. The bill awaits a signature from Governor Tate Reeves, who indicated Saturday he would sign such a bill if presented to him. A nine-member commission will introduce a new flag design to the public in September (to be voted on by the people on November 3).

We applaud our Board’s courage to speak up and the courage of our state leaders to take bold action to help unify our state.
June is African American Music Month, celebrating the songs of Black Americans who have left a melodious mark on our country through song.

In the #CityWithSoul, our icons are too numerous to list, but include greats like Dorothy Moore (seen here with King Edward), Grammy-winner Bobby Rush, and rapper and philanthropist, David Banner.

The Black Travel Alliance, a newly formed group of Black Travel Content Creators, is calling on destination management organizations (DMOs) like Visit Jackson to take #BlackOutTuesday support beyond social media and work toward meaningful representation of Black voices in the travel industry.

More than a mere black square on social media, the alliance believes sharing data points in several key areas will demonstrate true allyship, and that these areas are key towards ending the systemic lack of diversity in the travel industry.

To that end, Visit Jackson is proud to report metrics in four key areas:

• Employment – Current number and percentage of Black management: 4 of 7 - 57%; Total percentage of Black employees: 14 of 23 - 61%.

• Conferences & Tradeshows – Black representation in number and percentage on speaker panels, workshops, and in sessions in 2019 (first-ever Mayor’s Conference on Tourism): 6 of 15 – 40%

• Paid Advertising/Marketing Campaigns – Black representation as a percentage in TV, radio, print and digital channels including social media in 2019: Marketing Campaigns – 51% 

• Press and FAM representation in number and percentage: 38 of 49 - 78%
