The Blues in the African-American Story!
Black History Month at the Delta Blues Museum
The blues has played a large part in African-American history. While we present that story every day at the Delta Blues Museum, we pay special attention every February, Black History Month. This annual observance puts a spotlight on the struggles and triumphs of African-Americans to become full citizens in American society. We host several online programs on subjects from The Great Migration which carried the blues out of the Delta to Chicago and points north to individual artists like Muddy Waters and David "Honeyboy” Edwards who helped create a global musical revolution.
To know more the Delta blues’ role in this story, take a virtual field trip or virtual tour, visit our "Explore and Learn” series of visual biographies and check out our Gift Shop, which offers books and CDs for more Delta history. And come to Clarksdale to experience black history in-person - our exhibits are built around actual artifacts that make history come alive.
