Visit the historic Perkins Center!

Slide51John and Vera Mae Perkins were instrumental in securing Mississippi families during the civil rights era which, for the south, extended well beyond Dr. King’s original movement.  When you visit the Perkins Center, you will not only learn about the ministry, but you will also be introduced to some of the fascinating and dark history of this state whose people had endured some of the harshest injustices of the era.


Bring your ministry team, school or family here to experience the history, tour the region and enjoy some of the beautiful sites of central and southern Mississippi!
