About Us

NMHS Unlimited, a Mississippi-based 501(c)3 nonprofit company led by Wilma E. Mosley Clopton, Ph.D., is dedicated to sharing the untold stories of Mississippi African Americans and the way their courageous actions changed the future for everyone.

NMHS Unlimited began in the 1940s as The Negro in Mississippi Historical Society, which was founded by Dr. Wilma Clopton’s mother, Dr. Jessie Bryant Mosley, who also founded the Smith Robertson Museum and Cultural Center located in Jackson.

NMHS Unlimited has produced a collection of 14 short films, four books, a children’s coloring book, and one play that are used as educational resources in schools, libraries, and homes across the country. NMHS Unlimited also hosts a variety of filmmaking workshops, informative presentations, and community-minded events throughout the year.

With the tagline “Saving our history, one story at a time,” NMHS Unlimited ultimately strives to bring balance to the Mississippi narrative; not because injustices didn’t happen, not because poverty didn’t exist, but because love flourished, real triumphs happened, and success is and always has been possible! It is here that NMHS Unlimited shines as a company, because it is sharing these lived truths as couched in the factual collective histories of Mississippi and our country.
As a nonprofit, NMHS Unlimited relies on product sales and the collaboration and generosity of supportive partnerships, sponsors, and grants in its effort to continue bringing these innovative and relevant resources to children, youth, and adults throughout Mississippi and beyond.

Digital Magic

Digital Magic is an interactive, hands-on program that introduces young Mississippi students to documentary film making by using familiar technology such as iPhones and iPads. Students will learn valuable techniques, terminology, and research methods as they plan, film, and edit their own short videos.

This Digital Magic course is designed to be hosted at libraries to encourage students to utilize the vast research opportunities and discover resources they need to bring their own voices to life. With an educational focus on social studies, history, reading, language, and social interaction, each student is applying their research to their project while also learning a valuable art and skill – all of which help build confidence and shape long-term goals!

How to Bring Digital Magic to Your Local Library

Mississippi libraries throughout the state are invited to bring Digital Magic to their own communities. In order to keep the program free for participants, each host library is responsible for funding the session. Thanks to some costs underwritten by a grant from the Greater Jackson Arts Council and other generous benefactors, a substantial portion of the fees are already covered.


We'd really love to hear from you so why not drop us an email and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
