Abstract 

In this newspaper article, columnist Danny McKenzie advocates for the creation of a civil rights museum in Mississippi. He argues that Mississippi needs to acknowledge its controversial past with a museum in the way that other states like Georgia and Tennessee have done. While he credits the Smith-Robertson Museum and the Old Capitol Museum for providing related information, McKenzie insists on a need for a museum devoted exclusively to the Civil Rights Movement. According to McKenzie, the museum would attract many visitors and would honor the many Mississippi citizens who greatly contributed to the Civil Rights Movement.
