The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum located in Jackson chronicles the history of the Civil Rights Movement in the state from the 1940s to the 1970s. Opened in 2017, the museum offers an immersive experience through exhibits, artifacts, and multimedia displays that highlight the challenges faced by African Americans during this period. Emphasizing personal narratives, it shares the stories of both well-known figures and everyday individuals who played pivotal roles in the fight for civil rights. The museum addresses themes such as systemic racism, segregation, voting rights, education, and economic justice. (Submitted by Jimmy Olsen)

These are powerful, and graphic, movies and photos that document man’s inhumanity against man. Extremely thought provoking and ultimately inspiring, but be prepared.
