Jackson Municipal Auditorium
A large civic auditorium in a crumbling Southern downtown. In 1996 the theatre was renamed for Thalia Mara, a dancer and teacher who moved to Jackson in the mid-70s to create a professional ballet company and formed the USA International Ballet Competition.
I once believed we could evolve our way up from Jim Crow. I was wrong: federal intervention was necessary. (William F. Buckley, 2004)
