One of the things I do for work is create relevant member content, which I sure enjoy. I write magazine articles and social media posts. I also take photos and am a bit of a novice but learning. I found pretty quickly that I need to take anywhere from three to five photos to find one I like.

On Thursday (June 7) we hosted a Fair Housing Event at the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum in Jackson, and we had the opportunity to learn from Mississippi’s first African American Supreme Court Justice–Reuben V. Anderson. What an amazing man and leader. What a life. In a future biscuit/post, I’ll have to share what I learned.

I buzzed around the event taking as many photos as I was able (while also trying to keep up with social media updates). Here are the ones I like very much.

In this photo, Reuben V. Anderson is at far right. Second from left is Alyce Clarke, and Ms. Clarke is often called the Grand Dame of the Mississippi Legislature. She is the longest serving woman in our state’s legislature, and I’m quite fortunate to have taken her photo.

The other photos are Reuben V. Anderson at the podium and meeting with members. It was an exceptional evening.
