A Columbus, Miss. QUIZ! How well do you know this Southern city?

Shea Huffman May 30, 2014

We’re continuing our American Futures series with The Atlantic’s James Fallows this week. Kai and James have been traveling across the U.S. looking at how small towns are living and working in a new economy.

Next stop: Mississippi to the city of Columbus — A town with a long history in the South.

How much do you know about this small town? Take our quiz! And check out our reporting from Columbus.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
