Scenes from Mississippi History: The Tougaloo Nine (Film/TV/Video Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Scenes from Mississippi History: The Tougaloo Nine
Writer: MDAH
Abstract: On March 27, 1961, nine Tougaloo College students—Meredith Anding Jr., James Bradford, Alfred Cook, Geraldine Edwards, Janice Jackson, Joseph Jackson Jr., Albert Lassiter, Gloria Pierce, and Ethel Sawyer—held a sit-in at the Jackson Municipal Library. The Tougaloo Nine were members of the Tougaloo College NAACP Youth Council. The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, which opened alongside the Museum of Mississippi History in 2017, explores the period from 1945 to 1976, when Mississippi was ground zero for the Civil Rights Movement nationally. The museum features an exhibit about the Tougaloo Nine in “A Tremor in the Iceberg” gallery. This video was developed by the MDAH and Two Mississippi Museums education teams.
