WinterIn December 2017 To mark its 200th anniversary, the Archives and History Section The Mississippi will open two of the most recent museums - the Mississippi History Museum and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum. The Mississippi History Museum will explore the history of the entire state. The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, the country's first state-run civil rights museum, will explore the period from 1945 to 1976, when Mississippi was at the center of the civil rights movement at the national level.

This companion book highlights some of the Mississippi stories that were filmed at the two museums. The book also tells the story behind the museum project, honors those who made these museums possible and celebrates their commitment to making museums a landmark project to celebrate the passing of 200 in Mississippi. The story of the Mississippi comes to life through artifacts such as an 1840 cotton solution, a shrapnel encrusted with beads decorated with beads, a sign from the first black Masonic lodge in the state, a barn trap used in the province of Grenada, a chess set made of bread by a rider Liberty at the Barchman Prison, and an hour that has now stopped Hurricane Katrina Biloxi's house.

Never before have these things been collected together in one place or publication.
