#JSUStudents - Today in Mississippi there are many programs and initiatives to not only keep Mississippi’s rich music heritage alive, but also to bring that legacy to new generations so that they can keep it and pass it to their children. This year Mississippi is celebrating “Mississippi at 200” with unique events and programs throughout the state.

American Blues Scene was fortunate to spend some time with Abe M. Hudson Jr., elected Mississippi State Representative, on June 28th, 2016 in a special election for District 29, Bolivar and Sunflower Counties. He is a native son of the Mississippi Delta, and a graduate of T.L Weston High School in Greenville, Mississippi. After graduation, he attended the University of Southern Mississippi where he received a BSBA in Marketing. He then attained two Master’s degrees, an MBA and a MSBA in Finance, from Mississippi State University. Hudson is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Urban and Regional Planning from Jackson State University.

Hudson owns two businesses, Abe Hudson Consulting Services, and Real Delta Tours and Artistry. Real Delta Tours and Artistry is a company committed to providing authentic Mississippi Delta Tours, creating handmade invitations, and sponsoring creative events. The businesses are located in downtown Cleveland, Mississippi.

#JSUAlums - Fashion stylist and former J-Sette Tamala Greene (c/o '14) is making a name for herself in the fashion industry. Her most recent work was selected as the cover of the June issue of Féroce Magazine. We recently spoke with Tamala about her burgeoning career:

"My passion for fashion started my sophomore year at JSU but at the time I didn't know if I wanted to be a fashion designer, fashion editor, or even a fashion stylist. After graduating from JSU, I immediately got accepted into the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, CA where I studied Visual Communications for Fashion. FIDM taught me so much about fashion styling and while attending, I took on internships with celebrity stylist and designers. After interning, I wanted to start branching off to build my own platform so I started working with photographers based in MS and LA (Jerron White and Justin Hardiman) to bring my styling visions to life."

#JSUAlums - Everyone! Say congrats to JSU alum, Loyd Watson Jr! Watson is featured as a musician on the latest album of rapper 2 Chainz. Watson also grew up in Tuscaloosa and studied music education with a concentration on jazz at Jackson State University in Mississippi and served four years as a music director at Aliceville High School, Westlawn Middle School and Central High School.

“It never dawned on me that one day, I would perform on a 2 Chainz record,” Watson said. “I’m hoping it will allow me to follow my dream of being a full-time musician.”

Jackson State University interim President Rod Paige recently received dual recognition for his leadership – one from the Mississippi Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning and the other from campus supporters at a farewell celebration.

During a morning board meeting after which a number of agenda items were discussed, IHL commissioner Dr. Glenn Boyce saluted Paige for his “outstanding leadership to Jackson State University.”

Boyce read an IHL resolution, noting Paige’s “deep affection for the university.” Boyce also commended Paige for providing stability to the campus during a tough fiscal period and for launching a Presidential Challenge fundraising challenge that netted more the $300,000.

When Boyce asked Paige to consider taking on the temporary role, Boyce quoted Paige as saying, “I’m only coming to serve. I’m only coming because of my deep love for Jackson State University.”

#PeopleofJSU - "I am going to be Oprah! Something deep down in me is telling me I’m going to have her job. In hearing Oprah’s story, I realized we have similar stories. She dealt with sexual abuse. So have I.

I come from a very private family, and we didn’t really talk about stuff like that. So, I really didn’t know that people were being sexually abused like that until I got here. The last Miss JSU, Destiney Lawrence, held a girls forum when she was Miss Sophomore, and we were able to open up.

And I realized that so many people had dealt with sexual abuse, molestation and even rape. Just to be around so many people that have dealt with that made me feel more comfortable. That forum did a lot for me. Just to have that freedom to be able to talk about those things really did something for me.

Now, I just want to be able to tell my testimony. I think, the more I’m learning about myself, and the more self-aware I’m becoming, I’m finding comfort in just standing on my own two feet and saying what I want to say. This is what I’ve gone through and I’m going to say it because I can help somebody.

I feel like I’ve had to deal with a lot of things, and I've come out beautifully afterwards. So, I just want to be able to let other girls and women know that you can move forward."

- Alexis, senior biology/pre-dental major from Ridgeland, MS. Alexis is the '17'-18 Student Government President at JSU.

Everyone! Watch this moving documentary! On this day, 47 years ago, dozens of Jackson, MS city and state policemen unloaded more than 460 rounds of gunfire into JSU's Alexander Hall after claiming to have seen a sniper in a window on the building's top floor. When the shooting stopped, Phillip Gibbs, a JSU student, and James Green, a high school student, lay dead on the JSU campus.
