Cindy Gardner, director of Collections at Mississippi’s Department of Archives and History, highlighted items from Mississippi’s civil rights movement, and explained the history of segregation in Mississippi and how cultural norms have changed over time. The collection was to be housed at the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum which was scheduled to open in 2017. The museum would be the first state funded museum dedicated to civil rights history in the country.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Jackson, Mississippi, from April 24-29 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments aired on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments aired on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
