Event Details

Other Information

The Two Mississippi Museums will host a Sunday Screening of two short films, “Okay, Mr. Ray!” and “Ray Lum: Mule Trader” from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The short films explore the history of Mississippi, providing a glimpse into Southern manhood, community, and livelihood through the lens of a livestock trader. They also share an overarching sense of “place” and how the environment can contribute to the human experience.
A Q&A with author Bill Ferris, Ashley Melzer, director of “Okay, Mr. Ray!”; Betsy Lipscomb, Ray Lum’s grand-niece; and Henry Harris, a descendant of mule trader Squire Harris will follow the screening.
This program is free and in partnership with the Mississippi Humanities Council and the Mississippi Film Office. The run time for these films is fourteen minutes each. Refreshments will be provided. For more information, call 601-576-6850 or email
