"The Blues represent the roots of American Music. And as Mississippi's oldest music museum, the Delta Blues Museum represents the heart and soul of the Blues - not by honoring an industry or any one individual, but by honoring the culture and the musicians that shaped this art form. The DEEPER ROOTS campaign will provide state-of-the-art educational features for the museum, including exhibits for the new Muddy Waters Addition - a 7,300 square-foot expansion of the museum's facility in downtown Clarksdale. Join me in support of the DEEPER ROOTS campaign, and help the Delta Blues Museum tell an even deeper story of the Blues for generations to come." Morgan Freeman, acclaimed actor and supporter of blues history and the Mississippi region
