Work crews rush to set up a stage beside the state's two newest museums, the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017 in Jackson, Miss. The long-planned Saturday ceremony will mark Mississippi's bicentennial of admission into the union, however the appearance of President Donald Trump at the ceremony has drawn the ire of U.S. Reps. John Lewis, D-Ga., and Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who announced Thursday they won't attend the opening of Mississippi civil rights and history museums. What was intended as a moment of racial unity and atonement in the state with the largest share of African-Americans is descending into racial and partisan strife after Republican Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant invited fellow Republican Trump to attend. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)
