About the Phil Hardin Foundation's support
for selected publications


The Phil Hardin Foundation has helped support the printing and distribution of several publications. Most of the titles underscore the foundation's commitment to support projects relating to Mississippi's history, literature, and the arts that illuminate the state's remarkable heritage and the values that are a part of that heritage.

Projects such as these can introduce young Mississippians to their state's heritage, perhaps thereby providing a "shock of recognition" and the transmission of values revealed in that heritage: family, community, a sense of place and history, the meaning of justice and honor, the importance of enduring in the struggle for just causes, the significance as we live out our lives one with another of "courage . .. and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice." By so doing, these projects may help Mississippians forge a sense of common identity and interest.

The four anthologies of Mississippi Writers series, edited by Dorothy Abott, were the first volumes the Hardin Foundation supported.
