Story

MUCH MORE THAN A MUSEUM


Donating today is much more than supporting preservation of the Elaine Museum and Richard Wright Civil Rights Center. It brings hope for families who became poor overnight 103 years ago when their crops, property, incomes were destroyed in the famous Elaine Massacre - they become poor 103 years ago and are poor yet today. The museum is the cornerstone of efforts to replace poverty with above average incomes and wealth accumulation.

With heritage tourism and pilgrimages, come entrepreneurial businesses, art and music events for now marginalized people. Your donation, large or small, will help change lives for descendants who have been living on The Killing Fields for so long. As one teenager said, "I am beginning to really believe I won't have to leave Elaine in order to make a living. I can stay here where I want to be!" It all started with the preservation of the museum that now needs to be completed. Thanks for considering joining us in changing lives right now.

The Elaine Museum and Richard Wright Civil Rights Center is a project spearheaded by the Elaine Legacy Center.
