The McLendon Library at Hinds Community College’s Raymond Campus is hosting a traveling exhibit entitled “Inspiring the Next Generation: Exceptional Mississippi Women” Jan. 12-Feb. 23.

The exhibit made available through the Mississippi Department of Archives and History features 10 photo panels focusing on 32 women who shaped Mississippi and the nation, divided into eight categories: artists, performers, civil rights, athletes, authors, suffrage, education, and government and law.

The women featured in this exhibit include well-known individuals such as Fannie Lou Hamer and Leontyne Price in addition to influential, but lesser-known, women such as Burnita Shelton Matthews. A DVD entitled Magnificent Mississippi Women is included with the exhibit.
