Speakers Bureau: Why the British Left Mississippi
August 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmNo Cost
The presentation will consider Mississippi not as a “closed society” or provincial backwater but as a “middle ground” for interaction among empires, cultures, and forces of global change. Audiences are invited to imagine pig-crazy conquistadors and Native Americans as well as the lone pilot in the Civil War air force.
