Civil Rights Trail

The legacy of the African-American experience goes deep in Mississippi, tracing the arc of history from enslavement through war and emancipation and the struggle for freedom and equality. In many ways, Mississippi was the epicenter of the civil rights movement and, here today, you can walk in the footsteps of the movement’s heroes and learn their inspiring stories.
