Collectively, these programs at GRAMMY Museum Mississippi are an official bicentennial project made possible by a grant from the Mississippi Humanities Council, through support from the Mississippi Development Authority. Support for these programs also comes from the International Delta Blues Project, which is housed in The Delta Center for Culture and Learning at Delta State University.
