Starkville Civil Rights Forum

In Their Own Words

A research team comprised of Mississippi State professors and students has compiled a website on Starkville's civil rights movement. It unveiled the website at a community forum Oct. 29 at the Hilton Garden Inn. The site now includes 16 interviews with Starkville residents who experienced the movement firsthand. Those who attended the event were invited to share their own stories from that era for publication on the website.
