Meridian, Miss. Meridian's Museum of Art hosted the founder of the Kindness Foundation Tuesday night.
Dr. Olga Lutsenko, a former Russian educator, is taking her message across south Mississippi over the next few days. Dr. Lutsenko says Russia experienced a spiritual rebirth after biblical morals and values were taught in the public schools. She is calling on American educators and lawmakers to support the use of bibles in classrooms in the United States.
"It is totally changing the nations of Russia and Ukraine," said Dr. Lutsenko. "Those people who went through the programs are changing their minds. They became to be wise people, came to be moral people and they are showing real work."
The Meridian Museum of Art also introduced its new exhibit of Russian children's artwork.
