Mannie Jackson recently announced $20 million in development plans for the City of Edwardsville. Jackson, who grew up in Edwardsville and attended Lincoln HS, went on to play for and eventually purchase the Harlem Globetrotters. His current endeavor in the City is the Mannie Jackson Center for the Humanities, a world-class educational and conference center for people of all cultures and ages. The Center, located in the former Lincoln School on north Main Street, is scheduled to open on December 1st with a Public Open House scheduled for December 7th from 1-6pm. Please come out, tour the Center and show your support and thanks to all those who worked so tirelessly to help make Mannie’s dream a reality.
