Hey, Isaac. Thanks for informing me of your SSA idea, but unfortunately, I'm not at Hinds anymore. If I was there, however, I would totally be interested in helping you out. Good luck with that, and let me know if there's anything else I can do.
Isaac, there is a book "Mississippi The Closed Society," it can explain alot. Pearl is mostly white lower-middle income families. You ain't gonna get any sympathy from most of them towards secular/atheists beliefs. If you have family, they can suffer the most if you are an activist. Take care and perhaps we will meet soon.
