The Delta State University Delta Center for Culture and Learning recently introduced 55 people from West Baton Rouge, La., to the cultural heritage of the Mississippi Delta. The Senior Spirit Tour Group travels somewhere in the United States twice a year, and this year their first visit was to the Mississippi Delta. They stopped in Port Gibson, Vicksburg, Cleveland, and Indianola.
Tour participant Larry Durban wrote to the Delta Center, "As a former Chamber director, I commend you, your staff and your organization on promoting your treasures and encourage you to continue to tell the story of your community and the State of Mississippi. You own a very important part of our country’s history and it’s cultural heritage."
