About the Urban Summit

In January 2008, Bishop James Tindall, Sr., 2nd District Jackson County Legislator, convened the first Urban Summit. It brought together elected officials and urban residents to discuss Economic Development; Crime and Substance Abuse; Education; Health Care; Neighborhood/Housing; and Integration. Foremost on the minds of the Urban Summit planners and participants was the need to elevate African American families and provide a blueprint of how community and elected officials could help.
