The Mississippi Department of Archives and History presents Black Mississippians Who Shaped Our History, a thirty-minute video tribute to a few of the many black Mississippians who have made significant contributions to the state’s history, airing Thursday, February 28 at 8:30 p.m. on Mississippi Public Broadcasting. MPB will also stream the program on its website in February.
The video was written and produced by the Department’s Museum Division as a substitute for the tours of the Old Capitol exhibits and Hall of Fame during Black History Month, when special attention is given to African American subjects. Schools are invited to record the video for later classroom use. Additional airing dates and times will be announced later. Teachers may obtain enrichment activities and evaluations accompanying this program from the MDAH website at: mdah.state.ms.us/activities.pdf
