The State Law Library of Mississippi will host the traveling exhibit 100 Years After the 19th Amendment: Their Legacy, and Our Future. This is currently the only scheduled stop for the exhibit in the State of Mississippi.
The American Bar Association Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress launched the 19th Amendment traveling exhibit at its 2019 Annual Meeting. It has since been traversing the country.
The exhibit features historic photos and artifacts and details the story of the battle for ratification and outlines the challenges that remain. It was recently awarded a 2019 GDUSA American Graphic Design Award. The Library will also feature documents of its own related to Mississippi’s history in adopting the Amendment.
The exhibit will be hosted at the State Law Library, June 28 – July 12, 2020 and may be viewed in the Law Library during the hours it is open to the public.
Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
The Library is located in the Gartin Justice Building at 450 High Street, Jackson, MS 39201. Currently, face masks are required for entry into the Gartin Building. It is recommended that those who wish to view the display call the Library ahead of time to inquire about any other safety precautions that might be in place.
