The People of Mississippi: We Are America

Continuation of "Mississippi Moments," a series of 4-minute radio segments, development of an online Mississippi timeline, and revision and updating of a 1992 publication, Ethnic Heritage in Mississippi.

As the US settles into a new century and millennium, shaken by strife at home and violent conflict abroad, with a population divided on basic values and core beliefs, thoughtful citizens are considering anew our country, its past, its goals for the future. The MHC requests WTP funds for print, radio, and Internet programs on MS history and culture along with analysis and insight as basis for reflection and discussion. These projects draw on and enlarge current programs and expand collaborations with other partners.
