Juniors and seniors at Ashland High School in Ashland, MS had an opportunity to learn about the new Mississippi Civil Rights Museum (due to be completed in 2017) from the project manager, Jacqueline Dace on November 4, 2015. The students saw designs of the museum’s interior and exterior plans. Dace also shared a timeline of Mississippi’s Civil Rights Movement history from the 1800s to the present.
This visit was coordinated by Mississippi Civil Rights Movement Teaching Fellows Dr. Renee Hooper and Ayesha Brooks. They met Dace at the fall convening in Jackson where they immediately invited her to talk with students in Ashland.
