Each week in 2017, MPB is recognizing our state’s bicentennial year with “Mississippi: A Thread Through Time,” a new series of one-minute documentaries.
Each week, we’ll follow another thread in the rich tapestry of our state’s history. Some of the stories will be familiar; others will be amazing. Many will be serious, and a few will be on the lighter side.
New episodes premiere each Sunday in 2017 on MPB Television, MPB Think Radio and on mpbonline.org.
