Mound Bayou, Mississippi is a small town located in the western part of the state, approximately 90 miles south of Memphis, Tennessee. It was founded in 1887 by former slaves Isaiah T. Montgomery and his cousin Benjamin Green, with the vision of creating a place where African Americans could live free from the oppression and discrimination they faced in other parts of the country.

The town quickly became a haven for African Americans seeking economic opportunities and political freedom. Mound Bayou was known for its thriving black-owned businesses, including banks, grocery stores, and a hospital, all of which were rare for the time. The town also had its own school system and was home to the Mississippi Vocational College, a historically black college that provided higher education to the community.

During the early 20th century, Mound Bayou was a hub for civil rights activism and political organizing. The town became a center for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and was a key location in the fight for voting rights and desegregation in Mississippi.

Today, Mound Bayou is a small, close-knit community with a population of around 1,500 people. The town has faced its share of challenges in recent decades, including economic decline and population loss, but it has also seen a resurgence of grassroots activism and community development efforts.

One of the town’s most notable landmarks is the Taborian Hospital, which was founded by the International Order of Twelve Knights and Daughters of Tabor, a fraternal organization that provided healthcare services to African Americans during a time of segregation and discrimination. The hospital building still stands as a reminder of the town’s rich history and its enduring legacy of resilience and self-determination.

In recent years, Mound Bayou has also become a tourist destination for those interested in the history of the civil rights movement and the contributions of African American communities to the progress of the United States. The town’s annual Mound Bayou Heritage Festival attracts visitors from around the country, celebrating the town’s unique heritage and contributions to American history.
