Our goal is to become the number one digital repository of Mississippi Delta related media. We are committed to presenting original photos, video presentations and audio recordings that contribute to a greater awareness and understanding of the daily life and the Blues tradition in the Delta region of Mississippi. Visitors to our site are presented with visual and auditory documentation of one of the richest evolving cultural traditions in the global community.
If you have Delta related media you would like us to host please visit our contact page.
A new alliance has been formed between The Delta Research and Cultural Institute at Mississippi Valley State University and The Jus' Blues Music Foundation based in Memphis. Look for exciting collaborations between the two. The Delta Media Project also looks forward to lending our support, "by doin' what we do". Click the logos below.
The Delta Media Project is made possible in part by:
The Delta Media Project is proud to collaborate with Black Bayou Cultural Heritage under the direction of Temita Davis and DRCI in producing the first ever web presence for The City of Itta Bena, Mississippi. It is part of an incentive created by The Delta Research & Cultural Institute whereas rural communities throughout the Delta are able to participate on the global stage via the Internet. Through this programing, communities are able to establish an identity, increase the climate for economic growth and demonstrate pride in their home.
The Delta Media Project is proud to present the amazing story Mary Shepard and Club Ebony.
