Legacy of Lumumba

Good Wednesday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

It's currently 40 degrees and your morning drive will be marred by rain. However, the rain won't stick around all day and meteorologist Julia Weiden will let us know when she expects it to clear out in her First Alert Forecast.

Happening now, the news of Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lumumba's death continues to reverberate across Mississippi. In the WLBT AM Report we look back at the complex, and at times, controversial life of the civil rights activist, lawyer and public servant.

Meanwhile, the city of Jackson is under the leadership of acting mayor Charles Tillman. We'll let you know what the Lumumba's death means for the late mayor's a agenda.

Plus, how soon will officials be able to organize an election so citizens can vote for the Capital City's next CEO?

We'll bring you the answers to the questions and more at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7, and Mississippi News Now continues on-air on FOX 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a good Wednesday and with those slick roads we hope you have a safe drive today.
