The Mississippi History Project started in 1970 and received funding from the Southern Education Foundation. The Project sought to create a distinctively new type of history textbook that included the silent, the unnamed, and the dispossessed and that reflected modern historical scholarship. It wanted to correct the racial bias that dominate other textbooks. The radical book also featured original design and format features.
