Mississippi celebrates two hundred years of statehood in 2017. From a vast area populated by Native Americans and shaped by the European Colonial Era to statehood, we take a look at what and who we are today and a hint of who we are becoming. We also feature a story on the first capital building, located in Natchez, and the Key Brother’s historic flight over Meridian which resonates to this day.
