As most of you know, I am a history buff and just a naturally very curious person (well, I am female, right? LOL). New town, new history to learn...
Natchez, MS is intricately linked with the history of the African-Americans in this country. Once upon a time it was one of the richest places in America, mostly thanks to slave trade and cotton.
The fascinating Museum of Afro-American History and Culture is located in downtown Natchez. The collection is not huge, but still very rich and utterly fascinating. am certain that you will learn quite a few new things if you find the time to visit it. And it needs visitors - the building is in severe need of restoration, so come on down y'all and contribute.
