Nissan Donates to Mississippi Department of Archives and History

Thanks to Nissan, Mississippi will revamp two historical buildings.

In 2015, Nissan donated a whopping $500,000 to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. This charitable act was done entirely to support the ongoing construction efforts of future exhibits and displays over at the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.

A Whole New Look For Mississippi’s Historical Relevancy

This contribution will help support new dining spaces, rooms, and displays in both museums. Additionally, this funding will also give the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum a new gallery into their structure. This gallery will include new images and audiovisuals that provide a whole different perspective on civil rights history and timelines. Guests can enjoy walking through the museum and interacting with numerous visual representations that include both stories and music.

The funding also allows both museums to display rare state artifacts and original documents from the Department of Archives and History. Also, if you’re touring the area, be sure to locate the front grille of a 2015 Nissan Murano, which was donated by Nissan, will be added inside the Museum of Mississippi History.

Steve Doctrow, Executive Vice President of Integrated Marketing at Rogers & Cowan, along with Richard Davis, Chief Financial Officer of Rogers & Cowan, worked with Nissan on a variety of promotional marketing campaigns. Doctrow believes that charitable contributions open up new doors for both marketing and partnerships.

Tourism Boost

Currently under construction, be sure to stop by once it’s been completed. The expected date for which they will open hovers around the end of 2017. Both museums will be located next to each other on North Street in downtown Jackson. Expect Mississippi’s tourism to increase upon the construction of these museums as they look to draw visitors from all around the country.
