"Mississippi ReMixed" tells the personal story of Canadian Myra Williams Ottewell as she returns to Mississippi, tired of having to deal with stereotypical media portrayals. Determined to celebrate the great racial transformations that have taken place since the 1960s, she finds she must confront her own family's racist past. "Mississippi ReMixed" is a unique film about black and white relationships from that of a white, female, Baby Boomer. It is an inspiring, hopeful, yet unflinching look at the struggles and successes Mississippi is having with race relations as it grapples with its past in order to understand the future.
"Mississippi ReMixed" has aired four times since its Mississippi Public Broadcasting premiere on February 8, 2010. Several universities in the U.S. and in Canada as well as public schools and libraries have purchased the documentary to illuminate an era from a point of view seldom seen.
