Take Me To The River: Education Initiative

Sanders Soundstage

GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi and "Take Me To The River" team up to bring students a once in a life time opportunity to hear music legends discuss the importance of music and art in the world today.  

"Take Me To The River" is a documentary film that celebrates the inter-generational and inter-racial musical influence of Memphis in the face of pervasive discrimination and segregation.  The film brings multiple generations of award-winning Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together, following them through the creative process of recording a historic new album, to reimagine the utopia of racial, gender and generational collaboration.

We are excited to offer this program free of charge to students with support from the Mississippi Humanities Council.  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.  One (1) chaperone is required per ten (10) students and will be admitted free.  Additional chaperones will be charged the $10.00 adult group tour rate.
