Current Exhibits

A More Perfect Union: Mississippi Founders @ McLendon Library through December 1st

A More Perfect Union: Mississippi Founders @ McLendon Library through December 1st

The Mississippi Humanities Council created a traveling exhibit called “A More Perfect Union: Mississippi Founders.” This project specifically highlights Ida B. Wells-Barnett, John Roy Lynch, Thomas W. Stringer, Fannie Lou Hamer, Annie Devine, Lawrence Guyot, Aaron Henry, Unita Blackwell, Clarie Collins Harvey, Amzie Moore, Medgar Evers, and Vernon Dahmer. These individuals put their lives on the line, and some paid the ultimate sacrifice in striving for a true democracy in America. Through the exhibit, we dare to say that these individuals are the founders of Mississippi, the founders of a democracy that dared to say that all men are created equal and uplifts the ideals of the American constitution. These individuals were American patriots and should be revered in the same light as Patrick Henry and Alexander Hamilton. If our founding fathers were the architects of democracy, these individuals and others should be considered the actual builders of democracy for all Americans.
