View Flyer PDF

On February 27, 2016, Quitman County held a workshop to interpret and commemorate the “Mule Train”, Marks’ contribution to the Poor People’s Campaign of 1968.

The workshop, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and organized by Mississippi State University’s Carl Small Town Center and Department of History, featured interactive centers and exhibits on the Mule Train and Marks.

The goal of the workshop was for the community to tell the MSU team what they wanted to see happen in Marks to mark the Mule Train.
