"The Delta - Everything Southern!" conference returns to U of M

The popular “The Delta — Everything Southern!” conference is returning to the University of Memphis June 3 at the Fogelman Executive Center.

The conference begins at 8:15 a.m. with remarks by U of M President Shirley Raines and is followed by an impressive list of experts on the history, life and culture of the Delta: Gene Dattel presents “Cotton and Race in the Making of America”; Mark Matrana, “Lost Plantations of the Delta”; Martha Foose, “Delta Cuisine”; Willy Bearden, “The Delta Today”; Joyce Cobb, “Delta Blues and its Global Influences”; Sam Brookes, “Archaeological History of the Delta, Part II”; Luther Capooth, “Hunting Clubs of the Delta”; and Benjy Nelken, “Greenville: Yesterday and Today.”

“The atmosphere is relaxed and interactive with plenty of time for discussion,” said conference chair Willy Bearden. “Those who attend will leave with a new appreciation of the sights, sounds, history and influence of this fascinating region.”
