Mississippi Folklife 2 A. Sanchez Mississippi Folklife’s Spring 2020 Issue is now available, featuring  “Where the Locals Go” by Addie Citchens: In this essay, Addie gives a touching portrait of Messenger’s Lounge: a combination pool hall, domino den, juke joint and café in Clarksdale. It is Clarksdale’s oldest continuously-run business. As stated by Addie, “Messenger’s is both enduring and integral to the history of both the city and the blues.”  “Avalon and Valley: Mississippi John Hurt’s Blues Base” by John Zheng: Through text, poetry and photography, John Zheng explores the landscapes of the Avalon and Valley communities where blues legend Mississippi John Hurt lived, worked and made music.  “In Conversation with Lee Harper of History Bones” by Maria Zeringue: Maria sat down with Oxford-based artist Lee Harper to talk about her diorama project called History Bones. Lee makes dioramas of obscure historical scenes, cultural customs, events and local places. During the interview Lee discussed the origins and inspirations of this project and her artistic process.   This issue would not be possible without the work of our dedicated editorial team: Amanda Malloy, Visual Arts Editor; Addie Citchens, Music Editor; Emily Buhrow Rogers, Customs Editor; Tamara Becerra Valdez, Digital Editor.
