Jackson, MS:

Jackson Free Press

The Jackson Free Press (JFP) is Jackson's smart alternative, covering news, culture and politics for Mississippi's capital city. The JFP is Mississippi?s first and only AAN publication, serving a growing metropolitan area of 450,000, including 30,000+ college students. Steeped in literature and the blues, while informed by pop and hip-hop culture, the JFP reports the stories that the Gannett daily misses -- Trent Lott's past, the nuances of patriotism, African- American issues, antiwar sentiment, environmental issues and the politics behind high-profile fights such as tort reform, education and criminal justice in the Magnolia State. Named in honor of the Mississippi Free Press, an integrationist paper started in part by Medgar Evers during the Civil Rights Movement, the JFP has the dual goals of fostering an inclusive community and offering a fiercely independent media voice to help make Jackson the standout creative class town that it has the potential to be.
