Tour The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum to hear the stories of a Mississippi movement that changed the nation. Join AARP Mississippi and attendees from across the U.S. for a FREE virtual event on April 9 at 11:00 a.m. EST | 10:00 a.m. CT |9:00 a.m. MT | 8:00 a.m. PT - AARP membership is not required.

The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum promotes a greater understanding of the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement and its impact by highlighting the strength and sacrifices of its people.

Visitors will witness the freedom struggle in eight interactive galleries that show the systematic oppression of black Mississippians and their fight for equality that transformed the state and nation. Seven of the galleries encircle a central space called “This Little Light of Mine.” There, a dramatic sculpture glows brighter and the music of the Movement swells as visitors gather.

Once you complete your pre-registration, you will receive an email on the status of your registration. You will also receive an Event Reminder email.
