Blues Trail lands NEA attention
The Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC) was granted a $20,000 Folk Arts Infrastructure Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support the development of a Mississippi Blues Trail Curriculum Resource Packet.
The Mississippi Blues Trail Curriculum Resource Packet will assist teachers in integrating the new statewide initiative into the classroom. The curriculum will facilitate 4th grade students in understanding how blues music developed and continues to impact contemporary culture and can be used to examine topics including geography, history, and social studies in the five geographic regions into which the Blues Trail is divided (Delta, Hills, Pines, River/Capital, Coast) and beyond. More specifically, these lessons can be used to examine particular musicians and institutions, such as radio, record companies, or musical venues.
