The Mississippi Delta Chinese Heritage Museum
Against the backdrop of a rapidly disappearing society and culture, the museum promotes local heritage preservation by actively collecting oral histories, memorabilia, photographs and textile materials related to the history and story of the Mississippi Delta Chinese immigration and settlement. The resources developed from on-going preservation projects will encourage an environment of understanding and appreciation of our ethnic and cultural diversity.
The Mississippi Delta Chinese Heritage Museum opened October 2012 and is free and open to the public.
A complete index of materials currently held in the collection is coming soon. Researchers are encouraged to contact the University Archives staff for appointments to view collections.
If you are interested in contributing to the collection by donating family materials or by financially supporting the mission of the museum, please contact University Archivist, Emily Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling 662-846-4781.
