"About the Art on the Brochure Cover"
Leaders of the Civil Rights Movement used all manner of devices to impart information. The microphone, used in churches and public places, was joined by the typewriter, pen and ink, film, and music. Will Smith Jr. of New Orleans and Natchez captures these devices in pen-and-ink and watercolor.

About the Celebration...
The Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration has won numerous awards for its outstanding programming. They include a Cultural Olympiad Award, Best Event of the Year Award at the Governor's Conference on Tourism, the Mississippi Tourism Award, the Mississippi Historical Society's Award of Merit, the Mississippi Humanities Council Humanities Achievement Award, the College Public Relations Association of Mississippi Award, and the 2011 Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts.
The NLCC has been called by official evaluators "Mississippi's most significant annual conference devoted to literature, history, film, and culture."
Begun in 1990 by Copiah-Lincoln Community College and sponsored now by Copiah-Lincoln and Mississippi Department of Archives and History, with support of the Natchez National Historical Park, the Celebration annually presents a theme-based lecture series enhanced by films, field trips, workshops, exhibits, book signings, concerts, and discussions.
Each year since the NLCC began in 1990, the conference has been made possible in part by the Mississippi Humanities Council through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The conference is also made possible in part by a $100,000 National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant that was successfully matched dollar-for-dollar.
