The Director of Delta State University’s Delta Center for Culture and Learning Dr. Luther Brown recently spoke to over 250 middle and high school students at the St. Steven's Episcopal School in Bradenton, Fla. St. Stevens is displaying the Emmett Till traveling exhibit created by Delta State’s Capps Archives and based on the oral histories collected by Dr. Henry Outlaw of the Delta Center.
Brown was invited to speak about the Delta's rich cultural heritage by St. Stevens literature teacher William Southerland, who participated in one of the Delta Center's summer workshops in 2010. The workshop was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Southerland is a Faulkner scholar who has also attended the Oxford Conference for the Book. Since 2010, Southerland has brought his senior class to the Delta on an extended field trip, and he intends to do the same again in the summer of 2013. He loved his experiences so much that he also brought his wife to visit the Delta on their vacation, making sure that she got to dance at Po' Monkey's Lounge.
