(p.181) Conclusion
Wednesdays in Mississippi

Debbie Z. Harwell

University Press of Mississippi

The conclusion summarizes the highlights of Wednesdays in Mississippi and evaluates the program as a catalyst for change. The team members, rather than being brash and demanding, worked quietly and used their status as prominent women as a vehicle for finding common ground with Mississippi women. By the end of the second summer, WIMS’s work resulted in significant forward steps in Jackson community relations, which local leaders recognized and praised. The segment also suggests ways in which the WIMS model of working woman-to-women to open lines of communication continues to be useful in tackling today’s social issues.
