The University of Southern Mississippi Libraries' Special Collections offers a glimpse into a unique Southern minister, Will D. Campbell, through his words and voice. The exhibition is based on his papers, which were donated to USM in 1999. A "bootleg preacher," he was educated at Wake Forest College and Yale Divinity School. As an award winning writer, minister, theologian, and social activist, he ardently worked for "civil and human rights causes" across the American South. Excerpts from his writings here are supplemented with oral history recordings and video of Mr. Campbell. Certainly worth a visit for anyone unfamiliar with his life and work, one wishes this glimpse was more substantial.
