Fodor's Review

Named for the first public school built for African Americans in Jackson, this museum chronicles the struggles, contributions, and achievements of people of African descent, with particular highlights of the Mississippi experience. One of the permanent exhibits here, "Field to Factory: The Afro-American Migration, 1915–1940," was organized by the Smithsonian Institution as part of its comprehensive display at the Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. The historical exhibits will be of particular interest to visitors interested in the Underground Railroad, 20th-century civil rights, and Medgar Evers. There's a small gift shop on-site.
