Trump appears at new civil rights museum despite protests

Residents greeted the arrival of President Trump in the Mississippi capital Saturday with protests as he came to speak at the opening of a major civil rights museum.

The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum and a companion state history museum will open their doors in the afternoon after a celebration that attracted more than a thousand people from around the country, including civil rights veterans as well as Gov. Phil Bryant.

But after the White House announced this week that Trump would visit the museum and give an address at its dedication, a growing number of attendees and residents said they would boycott the event.

Trump attended the event at the invitation of Bryant, who oversees the Mississippi Department of Archives that runs the museum. The president landed in Jackson with U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson. Charles Evers, the brother of slain civil rights activist Medgar Evers, greeted Trump on the tarmac.

“These buildings embody the hope that has lived in the hearts of every American for generations. The hope for a future that is more just and is more free,” said Trump as he spoke to a mostly white, invitation-only crowd inside the museum.
