Mississippi Remixed Trailer

It was in a Canadian classroom that teacher Myra Ottewell, born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, started on a journey to her past. After watching the film Mississippi Burning, students could not believe that it was possible for Myra or other white Mississippians to have had anything but disrespectful, hated or bigoted relationships with African Americans in the 60s. And they doubted things had changed much since.

Frustrated that Canadians had nothing good to say about her state, Myra embarked on a personal journey to investigate the past, returning to her birthplace in Jackson, Mississippi. There she met James Meredith, the first black student to enroll in the University of Mississippi and Dolphus Weary, who left the state on a basketball scholarship and wrote the book, I Ain’t Comin Back. He did return and now runs an organization dedicated to building authentic relationships along racial lines.

But as Myra delved deeper into understanding race relations, she uncovered harsh and troubling information. Growing up white in the segregated South, so well portrayed in Harper Lee’s 1960 novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Myra had been sheltered from the hate crimes taking place in her state. These intense truths forced her to wrestle with demons of her past, as she gained a deeper understanding of race relations and “white privilege.” Her personal exploration celebrates the transformations occurring and proves that not forgetting Mississippi’s painful past is the key to finding true racial reconciliation.

“…a story that is not uncommon and one that still continues today right here where racism still manifests itself in subtle and not so subtle ways.”

Video on the Corren Agreement

This video, published some years ago by Parents for Democracy in Education, and posted below by permission, is still relevant today.  Unfortunately that is partly because the Corren Agreement is still in effect and has influenced education on a continuing basis in British Columbia public schools.    Other influences, too,  have led to an increased use of the schools to promote harmful propaganda.
