The Mayor as Equity Champion
Chokwe Antar Lumumba
Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba and Rip Rapson examine the monumental challenge of advancing racial equity in Jackson, Mississippi. How does he modulate his background as a civil rights organizer and son of a Black Panther as he moves from traditional planning to citizen budgeting and an equity-focused, community-driven agenda? How does he marshal resources, forge alliances with opposing political forces, and deal with the state preemption problem?
