In former Gov. Haley Barbour's address Tuesday morning about the progress of the state's new civil rights museum, he stressed the importance of not only recognizing Mississippi's history, but improving the city of Jackson.
#"It is in the best interest of all Mississippians that the capital city be a great city. We need to do what we can do to make Jackson a great city because many people only judge the state by Jackson; it's the only place they come," Barbour said.
#The museum, Barbour said, will enhance Jackson greatly and teach Mississippians "about the things of which we ought to be very proud and the things that we need to learn about so we don't commit those sins again," he said. "And Mississippi is long past ready for that."
