Wrapping Up Natchez/Adams County Civil Rights Project

Source: Natchez Democrat

Since early 2018, the Historic Natchez Foundation and Mississippi State Department of Health have collaborated to better understand the connections of history, place and health in Natchez and Adams County.

Through the Adams County Civil Rights Project, both organizations have unpacked the difficult aspects of Mississippi’s Civil Rights history to discern varying impacts at the community-wide level. Discussions concerning local education, local health and wellness and local civil rights history provided ample support for the importance and wide-ranging implications of this project.

Collectively, we acknowledge the overall gravitas of Natchez’s lengthy civil rights history. The question now shifts to: How can we utilize this history to create a healthier more inclusive Natchez community?
