Carl Davidson on Jackson Rising Conference Mississippi

The Jackson Rising conference on the Solidarity Economy was held in May 2 to 4, in Mississippi USA.  This puts the theme of democratization of the economy as an aspect of  fuller emancipation of Afro-Americans and others.  The conference was a homage to  Chokwe Lumumba, who died early this year shortly after being elected mayor of Jackson. His aspiration was to create an economy that works equitably and the flavour of the conference gives a sense of the inspiration that prompts people  to pioneer cooperative solutions for workers and their communities. The report is by Carl Davidson, on the Solidarity Economy Net web site, see Blog roll.
