Whites in the Land of the Blues: Ethnicity, Race and Class in the Mississippi Delta

This page is a portal into a number of sites resulting from on-going research in the Lower Mississippi Delta. The three sites most relevant to Merlot are "Race: Mississippi", "Out of Africa: African Missionaries to the Mississippi Delta", (both built to accompany videos, which are posted) and "J.C. Coovert, Photographer of the Cotton South." More sites are under construction.

The video "Out of Africa: African Missionaries to the Mississippi Delta" is a
compact and highly original telling of key themes in the history of contemporary
Christianity, the growing importance of African Christianity and the growing
interconnectedness of evangelicals. I have recommended this video to my
colleagues teaching modern Christian history in a distance format, as the film
provides both a self-contained look at the subject and ample material for
discussion. It would also be useful in the classroom.
Used in course? Yes

This resource could be a valuable tool for exploring a "specific" aspect of Mississippi history. The site claims to include a 23 minute video which I never could find on the site. One of the problems with this resource includes a limited bibliography that doesn't include some of the most well know and accepted works in this area.
