Mississippi Civil Rights Museum3
Mississippi Civil Rights Museum1

The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum situated in the state's capital, Jackson, shares the stories of a Mississippi movement that changed the nation. Opened in December 2017, the museum promotes a greater understanding of the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement and its impact by highlighting the strength and sacrifices of its peoples.

Here you'll witness the freedom struggle in eight interactive galleries that show the systematic oppression of black Mississippians and their fight for equality that transformed the state and nation. Seven of the galleries encircle a central space called “This Little Light of Mine.” There, a dramatic sculpture glows brighter and the music of the Movement swells as visitors gather.
