MLK Night of Culture: Black Empowerment

Join the Two Mississippi Museums at 6 p.m. Monday, January 16, for an evening of art, music, and poetry by local artists inspired by this year's theme—Black Empowerment. Inspired by the unity and determination of Black Mississippians demanding their civil rights in the 1960s, the evening will feature performances exploring how Black Mississippians overcame their fear of White violence and publicly demanded their rights as American citizens through boycotts, marches, and protests organized across the state.
