“Mississippi Votes: Looking Back, Moving Forward,” a documentary project of two reporting classes at the Meek School of Journalism & New Media, will debut at 1:00 p.m. December 1 in the Overby Center auditorium. The half-hour documentary looks at the recent 2016 elections from a Mississippi perspective, focusing especially on the key topics of immigration, voter ID and millennials.
The documentary is a combined project of JOUR 578 and JOUR 377 under the direction of Dr. Brad Schultz and Dr. Kathleen Wickham. Their students spent the semester interviewing dozens of figures around the state both before and after election night.
For more information, you can contact Dr. Schultz (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Wickham (email@example.com). There is a multitude of other in-depth stories available at:
