Black authors and black female owned small press slighted by Mississippi Civil Rights Museum’s Bookstore!

Black authors and black female owned small press slighted by Mississippi Civil Rights Museum’s Bookstore!
 
The Mississippi Department of Archives and History accepted the works of authors but its agency (Mississippi Civil Rights Museum Bookstore) rejects the sale of the same authors’ works.
 
Unfair prejudices are shameful. 
 
My Brother J-Boy written by Hazel Janell Meredith was rejected supposedly because it was self published. The lasted edition was commercially published, and in fact the store manager had not even viewed the book when she rejected it. The book is 100 pages. It is very comprehensive and the illustrations are crisp. This book is the most important children’s book written about James Meredith who is featured in the museum.  
 
Will you act?
 
Museum Employee’s Conversational Excerpts:
 
“Your books were brought to my attention and  we are unable to accept the books you mentioned in your email and I want to explain why.
My Brother J-Boy—Does not have the level of detail and professionalism we like in the books we sell

The New Populist Party—it is a novella and we don’t sell novellas

The Odyssey—half of the book is poetry and we don’t sell poetry

Please contact me directly if you have any questions.”

Yes, I understand the concept of the book and truly admire the sacrifices of James Meredith. The book is self published and not up to the standards of the other books in the Store.  This is not considered to be an insult to you or Mr. Meredith.  Many great books are self published but we have found that the quality is usually not as good if they have gone through a professional publisher.

This edition of My Brother J-Boy was not self published. The hardback edition was published by Meredith Etc via Ingram. I see you never saw the book. You are referring to an older version. This version was released last year. My Brother J-Boy Ingram 978-0-9993226-0-4 
I’d like to pick up Odyssey and The New Populist Party tomorrow. I never left a copy of My Brother J-Boy. I left provided the product page.
