"The Most Southern Place on Earth" July workshop begins

The July session of the Delta Center’s “Most Southern Place on Earth” workshop began Sunday evening with an opening reception at the Martin and Sue King Railroad Museum in downtown Cleveland. 
The workshop, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, attracts thirty-six K-12 educators from across the country. Participants will spend a week in the Delta immersed in the history and culture of the region, interacting directly with its people and places.
This workshop has created a national network of over 500 educational and cultural ambassadors for the Mississippi Delta National Heritage Area. Participants take what they have learned from the workshop back to their schools and communities, sharing stories and lessons from the Delta with students, colleagues, family, and friends both nationally and globally.
