History Is Lunch: The Benton County Civil Rights Movement

At noon on Wednesday, November 4,  Roy DeBerry, Aviva Futorian, Stephen Klein, John Lyons, and Joe Batts will discuss their new book Voices from the Mississippi Hill Country: The Benton County Civil Rights Movement as part of the streaming-only History Is Lunch series. The program will stream live on the Mississippi Department of Archives and History’s Facebook page——and be available afterwards there as well as on the MDAH YouTube channel— and on our History Is Lunch page

History Is Lunch is sponsored by the John and Lucy Shackelford Charitable Fund of the Community Foundation for Mississippi. The hour-long programs are held in the Craig H. Neilsen Auditorium of the Museum of Mississippi History and Mississippi Civil Rights Museum building in Jackson.
