A Dream Once Deferred But Now Fulfilled: The Honorable Judge Louise Linzy Story.

“This past election represents a movement, a new awakening for our people. We can participate in the governing of our own communities and schools. Black folk are breaking away from the ‘plantation mentality’ that has held us in bondage for so long. Things will never be the same in Tunica County.”
~The Honorable Judge Louise Linzy
Tha Artivist Writes:
On Thursday Dec. 29, 2011, W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News and R2C2H2 Tha Artivist had the honor of witnessing history being made in living color before an overflowing crowd in the Tunica County Courthouse…After a disappointed and suspicious defeat to longtime incumbent Ellis Darby twice in 2007, Sis. Louise Linzy kept her eyes on the prize and finally claimed her victory…Linzy, who was the first Tunica, Ms woman police officer, achieved another seminal first when she officially became the first woman judge in Tunica County history when she was sworn in as Justice Court Judge for the Southern District…Tunica County is the richest county in Mississippi and home to one of the top 3 largest casino operations in the country…With that said the county is nearly 80% Black but for years the majority lacked proper representation in local government…

With that said this past election cycle has been a historic one with not only the election of Judge Linzy but also the fact that this election saw a majority of African Americans with the exception of one position be chosen in key and influential positions to properly represent and reflect the majority of the county and thus the will of the people…This was a true throwback to the Reconstruction era and before the infamous Mississippi State Constitution of 1890 which disenfranchised the Black vote for decades…This election also saw the election of Steve Chandler to Tunica County School Superintendent….The former Memphis City Schools Principal at the age of 26 became the youngest person ever elected to that position in Mississippi history…Longtime school guidance counselor Rechelle R. Siggers became the first Black woman to be Chancery Court Clerk of Tunica  County.  Sis. Judge Louise Linzy coined these historic firsts as “The Tunica Trifecta of new leadership.”
W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News was disappointed to find out this story did not get picked up nationally…This proves that there is a need for outlets like W.E. A.L.L. B.E. to give you the news that you can actually use to inform, inspire and empower you…It is important that these stories are not only captured for the moment but also for posterity…You should never be the invisible or marginalized character in the telling of your own story…

W.E. A.L.L. B.E. Radio pays homage to Sis. Judge Louise Linzy by playing for the first time all the interviews she has done with our program since 2007 when she was first robbed of her victory, her feeling after the second new election that same year where she failed short and finally her most recent interview before the close of 2011 on her confirmed victory (post-swearing in ceremony) the third time around…Sis. Judge Louise Linzy truly embodies the motto, “a setback is a setup for a comeback!”
