Jeremy Houston | Mapping a Modern MS

Saturday, June 18, 2016

Jeremy Houston of Natchez, MS is a community organizer, musician, and activist. One his projects is the Wharlest Jackson Community Garden, named for slain Civil Rights veteran Wharlest Jackson. The garden educates and feeds members of the traditionally African American neighborhood in which it sits. All of Houston’s work focuses on a more complete and authentic telling of the collective history of Natchez.

This interview is part of the Museum’s Mapping a Modern Mississippi Initiative.
