October 28-31, 2018 Mississippi Living Legacy Pilgrimage
THE MOVEMENT: MISSISSIPPI MOMENTS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD
Did you know that the Mississippi murder of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old from Chicago, roused the resistance into a Movement—that is, the American Civil Rights Movement?
Understanding what is happening in our world today means taking the time to learn our history, so we can more effectively work against 21st century white supremacy. How else can we move to an equitable future?
Join the Living Legacy Project for a 4-day direct experience of key elements of Mississippi’s civil rights stories.
