Local Protesters March Over Recent Police Incidents

Protestors came together at Smith Park in Jackson on Friday afternoon. They participated in an event that they called the Mississippi Freedom March.

This came just a day after Thursday’s deadly shooting in Dallas, that left five officers dead and several others injured.

The march lasted for about an hour, it started at Smith Park and went on to Capitol Street and back.

Organizers told us this event was planned due to recent violent incidents involving police across the country.

The event organizer said that he’s challenging young adults to learn more about their history so they can change their future.
