Come experience the Mississippi Delta through slideshows, film, song, realia, and food samples. Participants will see, hear, smell, touch, and taste a sampling of diverse elements that converge in the Delta. Luther Brown who created the NEH MS Delta, describes the Delta as both a place and a mindset: ‘The Delta is also the American story shrunk in time and space.” The dichotomies of the Delta fuel active lessons that touch students deeply. Panelists will share these K-12 lessons taught in their classrooms across America, and share links for a wealth of additional lessons and background material available online. Find out how to participate in the NEH Landmarks Workshop: Mississippi Delta: the Most Southern Place on Earth, and how you can order the Emmett Till traveling museum panels that can transform your students’ school year.
