ABOUT THE COVER With its electrifying performances, Jackson State University’s internationally renowned Sonic Boom of the South epitomizes the soul of Jackson, a city rooted in blues, gospel and jazz. The captivating band mixes up-tempo shuffles with soul-stirring sounds. Propelled by Motown’s “Get Ready,” the high-intensity Boom lifts off with thunderous beats that rev up and thrust fans from their seat to their feet.

Every Second Saturday is “Sippin’ Saturday” where they will have tours and music! If you prefer cocktails to brews, head downtown and take a tour of Cathead Distillery. Cathead recently moved their operations from Gluckstadt to downtown, and their new space is a definite hit.

IN THE HEART OF JACKSON LIES A HAVEN FOR ARTISTS, A WALKABLE HISTORIC DISTRICT AND CUISINE THAT MAKES JACKSON A CULINARY DESTINATION. Fondren is buzzing. Come see what you’re missing in this funky,

throwback neighborhood that’s chock-full of energy and excitement.

It’s here that you’ll stumble upon bright people, bright buildings and bright vision. Local love abounds and it’s apparent in the support of Jacksonian-owned boutiques, restaurants, galleries, coffee shops and watering holes. Once home to the Mississippi Lunatic Asylum, an area known as Asylum Heights, Fondren is a place where expression and eccentricities are celebrated. The National Park Service recently listed Fondren’s historic district on the National Register of Historic Places. THERE IS NEVER A SHORTAGE OF THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN JACKSON’S FUNKIEST NEIGHBORHOOD.

SHOP Whether you’re in the market for original work by local artists or the hippest clothing around, you’ve come to the right place. Visit Brown’s Fine Art or Fondren Art Gallery for pieces carefully crafted by local artists. Head to Blithe and Vine for the most effortlessly cool styles for women, and to Swell-O-Phonic for clever tees and cool shoes. When it comes to antiques and interiors, Nancy Price Interior Design and Interiors Market don’t disappoint. DINE Whether it’s grabbing tacos at Babalu Tacos & Tapas or delving into redfish at Walker’s Drive-In, there’s always something cooking in Fondren. Pop in to The Pig & Pint for a chef twist on tasty barbecue, to Sal & Mookie’s for tasty New York-style pizza, or into Brent’s Drugs, recently named one of Vogue’s Top 7 Diners in the US and Jackson’s oldest soda fountain, for a creamy milkshake or malt. Campbell’s bakery has long been known for its almond teacakes and Saltine is the new hot spot for fresh oysters. The possibilities are endless, so head to Fondren with an appetite! DO There’s always something happening in Fondren. Start the day with a cup of locally roasted joe at Cups Espresso Café or Sneaky Beans. More nights than not, you can find live music presented by Ardenland at Duling Hall, a renovated school building that’s also home to a handful of neighborhood businesses. Get the night started or have a night cap at Fondren Public, where beer abounds; a glass of wine at Caet, a sophisticated spot for sipping; or a classic cocktail at The Apothecary, a speakeasy-style bar in the back of Brent’s Drugs. Shake a leg at Salsa Mississippi, a local dance studio. Excitement is an everyday thing in Fondren, where you’ll find events happening on the regular. Experience Fondren’s First Thursday, held the first Thursday in each month from March to December. Join in on the fun as the area comes to life with live music, gallery openings and more. Don’t miss the 6th annual Zippity Doo Dah® weekend April 1-2, 2016. Here, you’ll meet the world-famous Sweet Potato Queens and their fearless leader, Jill Conner Browne, marching Clydesdales, and a bevy of fun, all benefitting our state-of-the-art children’s hospital, Blair E. Batson.

the ground, Capitol Street has had new life, and the ripple effect is felt across downtown.

In the 1950s, Capitol Street was the place to be. Shoppers, diners and moviegoers would crowd the sidewalks with a flurry of activity. Often referred to as Mississippi’s main drag, Capitol Street served as a gathering spot for Jacksonians and visitors alike. When suburban shopping began to take hold, many businesses moved out of downtown Jackson, making the once bustling hub quieter. This Jackson gem sat somewhat forgotten for years… until now. Like a sprout shooting out of

For over 40 years, the historic King Edward Hotel sat vacant and forgotten. In December 2006, Watkins Partners, former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister and Historic Restoration, Incorporated, breathed new life into this treasure. The restoration was completed in 2009 and doors opened as the Hilton Garden Inn Jackson Downtown. Now, the King Edward features 186 guest rooms and suites, 64 luxury apartments, the King Edward Grill, King Edward Bar, Pavilion Pantry convenience mart, Seattle’s Best Coffee shop, a fitness center, swimming pool, business center, meeting and event space, and retail space.

Take a tour of the Old Capitol Museum, the anchor of the street, to learn more about the Mississippi of days gone by and to experience the beautiful restoration that took place following damage by Hurricane Katrina. Further down Capitol Street is Parlor Market, a restaurant opened by the late Chef Craig Noone in 2010. Parlor Market serves upscale seasonal Southern cuisine in the heart of downtown Jackson. Fresh sushi can be found nearby at Wasabi. Once you’ve seen and tasted it all along Capitol Street, venture off the side streets for even more downtown excitement. Visit Hal & Mal’s for live music and downhome Southern cooking, Keifer’s for Greek goodness or Jaco’s Tacos for casual Mexican fare. With over 30 restaurants, bars and coffee shops, downtown has a lot to offer.

>>

Several events draw crowds to the Capitol Street area each year, including the PM Burger festival pictured. Discover more downtown happenings in the Calendar of Events listing on page 53.


The Jackson Convention Complex offers 330,000 square feet of flexible exhibit, ballroom and meeting space for concerts, seminars, balls, conventions or wedding receptions. Often, you’ll find concerts, sporting events and great shows waiting just inside JCC’s doors. Just a hop, skip and jump away sits the Mississippi Museum of Art. The state-of-the-art museum houses a permanent collection and is architecturally designed to become a symbolic “museum without walls.” MMA is home to a breathtaking Art Garden, a 1.2-acre public green space complete with outdoor art installations, the sprawling BankPlus Green, a performance stage and various spaces for visitors to engage with the arts in a variety of forms. The museum is also home to The Palette Café, which offers a creative menu crafted by Executive Chef and Culinary Curator Nick Wallace.

In the City with Soul, our culture bleeds blue. The world famous Delta Blues sprouted from Mississippi’s rich soil and in Jackson, we celebrate that heritage accordingly. In fact, we are home to more historical markers celebrating blues heritage than anywhere else in the state. You’ll find places all around town to catch the blues, day or night. Did you know that Jackson has a historic blues recording studio now under renovation? Have you ever wanted to take a private music lesson with a genuine Mississippi bluesman? You’re in the right place. 24 |


KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THESE HISTORIC LANDMARKS:

Take a trip down the Jackson portion of the Mississippi Blues Trail, where historic markers commemorate individuals and sites that pay homage to this legacy. The Mississippi Blues Trail is composed of more than 100 historical markers and interpretive sites located throughout the state. Jackson currently has twelve markers, more than any other city on the trail. After dark, duck into one of the local hot spots like F. Jones Corner, The Iron Horse Grill or Hal & Mal’s, where you can spend the evening indulging in the “Blue Monday” special, and discover what exactly the fuss is all about. Spend the night catching the blues—opportunities abound in Jackson! Take a drive through the Historic Farish Street District, which once served as the cultural and business hub for Jackson’s African American community, now under development as Jackson’s newest entertainment district. While you’re cruising around Jackson, tune in to AM 1400 or 90.1 FM for a hefty helping of Blues tunes.

Alamo Theater 333 N. Farish St. This theater once hosted vaudeville shows, movies, touring jazz acts and a weekly talent contest. Native Jacksonian Dorothy Moore of “Misty Blue” fame was a frequent winner and you can still see her perform around town today. Nat King Cole was performing at the Alamo when he got the news that his daughter Natalie was born. Record Mart (and Trumpet Record Company and Diamond Recording Studio) 309 N. Farish St.

What began as a furniture store had its fate change when the owner’s wife, Lillian McMurry, first heard Wynonie Harris’ “All She Wants to Do is Rock.” Lillian began ordering and selling blues and gospel records from her husband’s store, and the record department soon consumed the store. Lillian founded the Trumpet label and began recording music. She was the first to record Sonny Boy Williamson II and later produced the majority of his hits.

SPEIR PHONOGRAPH COMPANY 225 N. Farish St. H.C. Speir, a Caucasian shop owner, traveled the South as a talent scout in the 1920s and 1930s, finding blues artists for record companies. Charley Patton, Skip James and Willie Brown were among his notable discoveries. Catch the Blues... And chase them away!

Big Apple Inn 509 N. Farish St. Sonny Boy Williamson II and his wife Mattie lived in the upstairs apartment of the Big Apple Inn during the years he was recording at Trumpet. Later, that apartment became state headquarters for the NAACP where civil rights leader Medgar Evers worked as a state field secretary before his murder at age 36. Once known as Big John’s, Big Apple Inn is famous for its “Smokes,” minced sausage sandwiches, and pig ear sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs and tamales. Birdland 538 Farish St. Once known as the Crystal Palace, touring jazz and R&B acts frequented this spot. The original name is still visible in fading paint on the brick wall on the building’s south side. Once you’ve officially caught the blues bug, chase it away with fare that rivals any other. We’ve got Southern soul food at its finest. Whether it’s the Big Apple Inn’s pig ear sandwich, Hal & Mal’s Blue Monday plate, Bully’s oxtails or barbecue from E&L, you won’t have the Blues for long, but rather, a full taste of what Jackson is all about. 26 |

WHERE’S YOUR FAVORITE HOT SPOT FOR HEARING THE SOUL THAT MAKES UP THE AREA’S MUSIC?

Jesse Robinson, Stevie J, Grady Champion and Mr. Sipp are all good cats that know how to bring it. You can find them all over playing.


The Civil Rights movement makes up much of Jackson’s history. What was a dark time is a time we look back on in reverence and remembrance, celebrating the leaders who paved the way for our city, state and country to enter into the future. Evidence of this trailblazing is everywhere you look. From the proud civil rights legacy of Medgar Evers to the turn-of-the-century architecture that graces the campus of Tougaloo College, AfricanAmerican heritage is celebrated. Unless you lived it, it’s hard to understand the history of African Americans in the Deep South. Inside the Smith Robertson Museum and Cultural Center, located steps away from the State Capitol building, you’ll find art and artifacts that displays the contributions of African Americans to not only our history, but also our present-day culture. The Margaret Walker Center on the campus of Jackson State University is a museum dedicated to the preservation, interpretation and dissemination of African-American history and culture. Founded by Margaret Walker in 1968, the center is home to significant

records like the papers of the late Margaret Walker; those of the former US Secretary of Education Roderick Paige; and a large oral history department that consists of nearly 2,000 interviews. See firsthand the place where history happened at the Evers family home, the site of the assassination of Civil Rights leader Medgar Evers in 1963. Tougaloo College operates this museum that contains period furnishings, exhibits and family photographs. The Evers home was used in the film, Ghosts of Mississippi, which tells the story of the 1994 retrial and conviction of Evers’ murderer, Byron de la Beckwith. While downtown, you can pass by the historic Greyhound bus station that served as the site of the day in 1961 when Jackson attracted national attention. Black and white students, the Freedom Riders, were arrested at the station for standing up for challenging the color line. Join us as we celebrate how far we’ve come and as we look toward an even more united future.


Minnie White Watson is an archivist at Tougaloo College and curator for the Medgar Evers Historical House here in Jackson. She grew up in Jackson, attended Jackson State University and has called the City with Soul home ever since.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO ENJOY THE OUTDOORS IN JACKSON?

Jackson is a great city with lots of interesting places to visit, sites to see and things to do. I always love to go to the Farish Street Heritage Festival. It’s the second-oldest African American community festival in the state, and features live performers, children’s activities and soul food. The Lynch Street Festival and Evening of Blues at the Zoo are other favorites. A visit to the Jackson Zoo always brings out the kid in me.

Minnie White Watson WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPOT ON HISTORIC FARISH STREET?

When Farish Street was a thriving, bustling district for shopping, various businesses and entertainment, it was one of my favorite places to visit. Now, I still love to frequent the Alamo Theater to attend various functions and Evenings of Entertainment. The Farish Street District is now under development to reemerge as the city’s newest entertainment district, and I’m so excited to see the area regain its place in the spotlight.

WHAT DO YOU FIND YOUR VISITORS LOVE MOST ABOUT JACKSON?

I always hear compliments about Jackson’s hospitality and the friendliness of its citizens every time visitors come see us.

Chef Matthew Kajdan began his professional career at Jackson’s own Bravo! Italian Restaurant, where he learned under Chefs Louis Larose and Dan Blumenthal. Now, he is the Executive Chef of a downtown favorite, Parlor Market, where he gets his kicks off of serving new twists on Southern food. His progressive ideas use local products in a commitment farm-to-table cuisine.

Matthew Kajdan

JACKSON IS A DIVERSE MELTING POT. WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE SPOT TO ENJOY ETHNIC FOOD?

WHEN YOU VENTURE OFF THE BEATEN PATH, WHAT HIDDEN SPOTS DO YOU FIND YOURSELF DIGGING IN?

Edo Japanese on Ridgewood Road near the Beasley/Atkins exit has some of the best sushi around. They have great specials and creative chefs. It's a family-run restaurant with great service.

You should try the Big Apple Inn. It’s in downtown Jackson on Farish Street. The restaurant has been in its location for 50 years and once housed Medgar Evers’ office right above it. The Big Apple Inn is known for its "smokes and ears," so if you happen to be downtown for lunch, go check it out!

WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO ESTABLISHMENT FOR A QUALITY, CASUAL DINING EXPERIENCE?

Lou's Full Serv off of Fortification in the historic Belhaven neighborhood is a relatively new restaurant to Jackson but the chef, Louis Larose, is one of the best in town. He has great blue-plate specials for lunch and high-end entrees in the evening without the high-end prices. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICONIC JACKSON RESTAURANT?

Walker's Drive-In is probably one of the most iconic restaurants in Jackson. It has been here for decades, but really hit its stride with Derek Emerson as owner and chef. It's the perfect place to bring someone for a first date or a special occasion. The food is some of the best in town and all of the locals know it, so make sure you call ahead and get a reservation.

WHAT’S THE BEST BREAKFAST SPOT IN JACKSON?

One of the best breakfast spots in Jackson is Brent’s Drugs in Fondren. They start serving breakfast at 10 a.m. and they have some great pancakes and French toast with all the fixings you can imagine. The only problem is that you’ll want to stay for ice cream or a malt after. Plan on taking a mid-day nap if you have Brent’s for breakfast!
