Overview

Mississippi by Ben Wynne

Beginning with the state's earliest settlers, Ben Wynne explores the paradox that is Mississippi-its rich soil and namesake river, yet its vulnerability to natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina. It is one of the US's poorest states, yet has one of the richest cultural legacies. Wynne sketches Mississippi's development from primarily native settlements and wilderness to industry-driven cities; examines the importance of slavery and agriculture and the resulting devastation that followed the Civil War; and follows the slow transition from segregation to equal rights marked by the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.
