movie facts

The state of Mississippi, where the film Mudbound is set in, has a long withstanding history with racism. It is still struggling with echoes of it even in the 21st century. Its school system, especially in the Delta region, is still building into being an inclusive community. Historically, the region has the most number of segregated schools. Before the victories of the Civil Rights movement in the United States, segregation academies abounded. These were private schools where white parents enrolled their white children in order to avoid having to attend schools which were inclusive of other races.
