Statement

There are glimpses of the rapidly vanishing treasures that lie nestled amongst the crumbling poverty and failing exteriors of the Mississippi delta.  Those organic Blues tunes and the intoxicating smell of southern cooking drift out suggesting the determination of small town Mississippians to overcome oppressive poverty and their dilapidated structures to create a space where their resilient nature can come alive and celebrate life.
