Mississippi Blues Trail

One of the things I love about producing this program every week is I get to meet and talk to some really fascinating people who are way smarter than I am. Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll reintroduce you to traveling school evaluator and the director of the Mississippi Blues Trail.

We’ll also spend an Academic Minute with your brain on music.

A great way to understand the history of a region and its people is to study their music. And in Mississippi, that music is the blues.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear about the Mississippi Blues Trail, and how it traces the history of this uniquely American genre of music from its roots around the state to cities around the world.
