The mayors of some of America’s oldest all-black towns gathered at UNC Chapel Hill this week.
The conversations centered on history, race and how to keep these communities economically viable.
The gathering was almost like a family reunion. The mayor of Hobson City, Alabama doesn’t always get to see the mayor of Mound Bayou, Miss.
“I’m Darryl Johnson, I’m mayor of the greatest city in Mississippi. Mound Bayou, Mississippi."
