The Mississippi and Brooklyn Women exhibit has been researched, created, and developed by the students of St. Francis College HIS 2314 and University of Southern Mississippi HIS 477/WGS 410.Throughout the development of the digital exhibit about the history of women in Brooklyn, NY and Mississippi, students worked together using walking tours, zoom meetings, and interactions with the community to ensure the creditbility and real truth of women's history.The site ranges from including women who helped fight the stigma of only being housewives to women who paved the way for people of color and their advancement in society. By the end of the exhibit, you should be able to fully understand the real truths of what it was like to be a woman in America and the power they hold in our history and development as a nation.
