About the Project

100 Years From Mississippi is a 60 minute documentary on the life of Mamie Lang Kirkland, a 111-year old African American woman who experienced and survived racial terrorism, segregation, bigotry and bias and yet continued to have hope, joy and love of life, full of the certainty that we can do better.
