City of Jackson to kick off first soul-filled weekend​

JACKSON, Miss. —
The city of Jackson has kicked off its first Soul-Filled weekend, with events that emphasize the mind, body, and soul.

After a steady season due to the pandemic, communications manager Yolanda-Clay Moore said the weekend is expected to bring in millions of dollars.

"We've been suffering as far as the pandemic goes and this is an opportunity to just kick off this fall season, football season everybody is excited about football season and what better way than a doubleheader, a SWAC doubleheader," said Clay-Moore, Visit Jackson communications manager.

On Saturday the Jackson State Tigers took on the Delta State University for the WC Gorden Classic. The next day, Mississippi Valley State University will play against Southern University at the Delta Bayou Classic.

Someone in Jackson was finally thinking. Southern will attend strong and seeing that Valley only holds 10k, with now hill to sit on, this should have good attendance. Just remind those attending, don't stray too far from the stadium.

1) The CEO of Visit Jackson (Dr. Thigpen) is a Valley alum. Soul Filled Weekend is his creation

2) Southern travels but they don't to Valley (because we ain't white like Ruston). If they don't travel to Jackson with perfect weather in the forecast (because you're in trouble if you're depending on Valley to fill your stadium), I don't wanna hear about how well they travel with a game tailor made for them. Valley wins with a nice paycheck and the game SHOULD have at least 15k there which is a win for Jackson with the economic impact from over 50k for both games
