Keenon Walker | Mapping a Modern MS

Thursday, September 15, 2016

Keenon Walker works closely with The Spectrum Center, a non-profit LGBT resource center and safe space. The Spectrum Center hosts events that LGBT individuals can attend to discuss their experiences and to meet others who can empathize with their stories.

“Right now I feel like Hattiesburg is a chapter in my life that I’m not finished with, and until that story ends, I’m here. And I’m happy to keep building the city and making it great. You should dare to be different, and if you can push forward and change one person, then you’ve done your job in this battle to make Mississippi better. And it’s changing every day.”-Keenon

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