'The Choctaw Code Talkers of World War I'

October 12, 2017 - 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

The Choctaws played a significant role in communications during World War I. The Choctaws also are an integral part of Mississippi’s rich cultural heritage, with the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians having a population of approximately 10,000. Mississippi State University Libraries will show a screening of the documentary "Choctaw Code Talkers," followed by a discussion featuring veterans and Choctaws. Free to all, the program is part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial and other organizations, with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities.
