Take a virtual stroll through Forest, a historic Mississippi community, through the lens of Mississippi Today photojournalist Vickie King.

Forest is just one of five communities our newsroom is focusing on for our community listening project, MT Listens. The others are Canton, Yazoo City, Moss Point and New Albany.

Be part of this project.

If you live in Canton, Yazoo City, Forest, Moss Point or New Albany, please take a minute to fill out the below survey, or share it with someone you know.


We want to hear from you!

By listening more intently and understanding the people who make up Mississippi’s communities, our reporters put a human face on how policy affects everyday Mississippians. We’re listening closely to our readers to help us continue to align our work with the needs and priorities of people from all across Mississippi.
