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.
We should not be ashamed to acknowledge truth from whatever source it comes to us, even if it is brought to us by former generations and foreign people...there is nothing of higher value than truth itself. (Ya'qub ibn Ishaq al-Kindi - Islamic scholar, c.801-866)
