Kymara D. Sneed is a History PhD Candidate at Mississippi State University. A scholar of Agricultural, Rural, and Environmental History, her research focuses primarily on 20th century African American agricultural history. Her dissertation, Mississippi Mud, examines racial discrimination within the Cooperative Extension Service in Mississippi and how it affected black farmers. Furthermore, she uses this dynamic to analyze the extent of their participation in the Civil Rights Movement and whether black farmers’ struggles with the Cooperative Extension Service ran parallel with the movement or was its own campaign. She is a graduate research assistant in the Social Science Research Center aiding researchers with Project AWARE.
