MAXSpeaks: Remembering North Mississippi
August 22, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
August 22, 6–8pm
Join us for a glimpse into the past with photographer and film maker Michael Ford. His interviews, still photographs, and videos are included in his award-winning documentary film Homeplace (1975) and newly published book North Mississippi Homeplace (2019). Several photographs will be on display, and Ford will tell stories of his time in Mississippi as blacksmith apprentice, making molasses, playing fife-and-drum music with Otha Turner, and more. And as a special treat, blues musician Mark “Muleman” Massey, who is also featured in the film, will perform. Free and open to the public. Light refreshments provided.
