100 Years From Mississippi is a 40-minute documentary about the amazing journey of Mamie Kirkland’s flight from Mississippi and her family’s perilous migration from the Jim Crow south to escape her father’s lynching, murders of African-Americans on the streets of East St. Louis and KKK cross burnings on their lawn in Ohio. At 108 she has become a celebrated elder whose story has captured the front page of the New York Times.
