Hundreds expected to protest President Trump's visit to Jackson

Two U.S. Congressmen Cancel Plans To Attend MS Civil Rights Museum Opening Due To Trump Visit

He wrote on facebook, "Having the openings of the museums involve President Trump on any level pollutes the day and will sap sorely needed credibility from these endeavors". Previously, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she would be "disappointed" if there were protests as Trump visits the civil rights museum. But what was intended as a moment of racial unity and atonement in the state with the largest share of African-Americans is descending into racial and partisan strife after Republican Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant invited fellow Republican Trump to attend.

Two Democratic Congressmen say they will not attend the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum Saturday in Jackson, because of President Trump's plans to attend the ceremony.

The NAACP has said Trump should cancel his planned appearance because of his divisive record on civil rights issues.

"We are telling a much longer story in the Museum of Mississippi History, a much deeper story in the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum", noted Katie Blount, director of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

Representatives John Lewis of Georgia, a civil rights pioneer, and Bennie Thompson of MS said in a joint statement that the president's remarks about women, the disabled, immigrants and professional football players show disrespect for the legacy of those who are honored at the museum.

Numerous seminal moments of the movement - the stories of Emmet Till, of Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner, of Medgar Evers, of James Meredith, of Fannie Lou Hamer and the Freedom Riders and Freedom Summer - all happened on MS soil. Some are planning protests.

"We are better than that", Bryant said Wednesday of those who oppose Trump. "I don't know anyone who thinks this is a smart move".

In the 1950s and '60s, segregationist whites waved Confederate flags and slapped defiant bumper stickers on cars declaring MS "the most lied about State in the Union".

Decades later, as MS marks its bicentennial, the State is getting an unflinching look at its own complex and often brutal past in two history museums, complete with displays of slave chains, Ku Klux Klan robes and graphic photos of lynchings and firebombings.

The two distinct museums under a single roof are both funded by State tax dollars and private donations. A museum of Mississippi History covers 15,000 years of human habitation. "He has never been a supporter of civil rights or equal opportunity or justice".
