Toby Barker | Mapping a Modern MS

Monday, September 19, 2016

After seeing the needs of Mississippi, Toby Barker decided to stay and contribute to the city of Hattiesburg. It has been nine years since he made that decision and was elected to be a State Representative, and Toby has worked with women and minority workers, as well as small business entrepreneurs.

“There are lots of examples, not only of private entrepreneurs, but social entrepreneurs who get involved in causes, who are doing things differently and who can really provide us a place, a certain dynamic nature to it that I think can really be powerful… I think we have that here.”-Toby

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