Many in Mississippi see signs of change as Black voters reengage
Black voters, representing 40% of Mississippi’s overall population, have begun reengaging with the political process. Five Black candidates are running for state-wide office, each trying to become the first African American candidate to win in the posts they are campaigning for. Voting rights advocates hope this effort will catalyze change in the state, rebuilding the Black communities voting base and giving Democrats more opportunities in jurisdictions currently controlled by Republicans.
