Nissan Supports Mississippi Civil Rights Museum

Nissan has donated $500,000 to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History to support ongoing construction efforts and future exhibits at the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.

Nissan’s contribution will support the construction of a dining and gathering space that will service approximately 180,000 annual visitors to both museums, as well as a gallery at the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.

It will feature images and audiovisuals that transport visitors back in time to hear the stories and experience the music that have been a unifying force behind Mississippi’s civil rights history.

“This project seeks to tell the full story of Mississippi’s past while also magnifying hopes for the future,” said Jeffrey Webster, director of Diversity and Inclusion for Nissan North America. “This contribution continues Nissan’s commitment to diversity, education and service in our community.”

The two museums will feature rare state artifacts and documents from the collection of the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. Nissan will contribute the front grille from a Mississippi-built 2015 Nissan Murano to go on display at the Museum of Mississippi History, symbolizing the company’s contributions to bring auto production to Mississippi.
