Subject: Mississippi's Best Awards Ceremony Battles Perception with Reality
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MISSISSIPPI’S BEST AWARDS CEREMONY BATTLES PERCEPTION WITH REALITY
What: 1st Mississippi’s Best Awards
Why: The NBC special “SEPARATE AND UNEQUAL” did much to highlight the areas that the state of Mississippi has yet to focus on for improvement, but failed to showcase all of the good that the state has accomplished and its natives have achieved. This was the reason the Mississippi’s Best Awards was created to celebrate the best of the state in over 40 categories, recognizing those who are making a positive impact on the state through their words and deeds. A portion of all ticket sales benefit non-profit organizations within the state. This year the recipients are the Rankin County Arts Alliance and HIV/AIDS organizations Building Bridges Inc., AIDS Action in Mississippi and Grace House.
When: Saturday, October 28, 2006 Where: TelCom Center, Downtown Jackson
• Hours before the state of Mississippi recognizes its best, a panel of its hometown heroes and others will address issues that have affected it over the years. MS's own C. A. Webb welcomes you to a LIVE TAPING of "MISSISSIPPI: Overcoming Perception with Reality", a special edition of his television show CONVERSATIONS WITH C. A. WEBB. This will take place on Saturday, October 28, 2006 in the TelCom Center Theatre beginning promptly at 3p.m. Among the topics that will be discussed will be how the state can better work together to overcome some of the undue negativity that it has been affected with. The panel will also strive to give ways the good that is being done can be brought to the fore, replacing some of the contact bad news. The focus of most of the topics will be directed to the the youth of the state and how they can work together to get issues important to them addressed. This is an interactive discussion where YOU, the audience, can ask the panel questions as well as comment on the work that they are involved in.
