Walt Grayson explores the complexities of the Mississippi Delta.
The Delta is a complex woven tapestry of race and culture, of poverty and wealth, and the interaction of all of these distinctions played out on a flat table of earth that is just as complex as the society living atop it; with hauntingly beautiful bayous and swamps in contrast with stark plowed fields that stretch to the horizon. Walt Grayson explores his native Delta on Mississippi Roads.
