Admitted to the Union on December 10, 1817
In the post-war years religion became very popular in the state and the rest of the Southeastern United States, leading some to deem the region the "Bible Belt". Churchgoers prescribed to the Social Gospel movement, which attempted to apply Christian ethics to political situations of the day. By the early 1900s, racial tensions had grown because of several laws approved by whites, and the African-American philosophy of spiritual equality had begun resonating with the population. African-American Baptist churches had grown to include more than twice the number of members as white Baptist churches. The African-American call for social equality resonated throughout the Great Depression in the 1930s and World War II in the 1940s; members of Mississippi society began to speak out against racial injustices such as the Jim Crow Laws. The American Civil Rights Movement had many roots in religion; both sides cited religious reasons for their viewpoints. The end of racial segregation led to the reintegration of some churches, but most still today remain all black or all white. Since the 1970s, fundamentalist conservative churches have grown rapidly, fueling Mississippi's conservative political trends.
