Mississippi Blues Trail Curriculum Guide
Mary Margaret White, folk arts coordinator of the Mississippi Arts Commission, announces publication of a new online interdisciplinary guide that explores Mississippi history through the blues. Tied to arts education standards as well as social studies and Common Core standards, the lessons offer deep connections to the arts. Esteemed historians, folklorists, and educators contributed to this project supported by the Mississippi Blues Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts. Designed for 4th-grade, the materials are easily adaptable up to grade 12 and will be of interest to educators and students around the country, not only in Mississippi. Audio, video, and photography from the Association for Cultural Equity's Alan Lomax Archive and the William R. Ferris Collection at the Southern Folklife Collection at UNC-Chapel Hill enrich the guide. This partnership makes available high-quality field recordings from two well-known blues documentarians. Because the resources are streamed online, users do not have to worry about large downloads or access to YouTube, iTunes, etc. Download at Contact her at
