Encountering Southern Culture: A Journey to Oxford and Memphis

Thursday, April 6–Sunday, April 9 |

We are headed north to the hills of Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County (Oxford, MS) and to Memphis, on the bluffs of the mighty Mississippi just across the state line in Tennessee. Stephen Fox, architectural historian, and Memphis’ own Willy Beardon (writer, filmmaker and producer), will lead us through the civil rights and cotton history, music scenes, and other significant environs of Memphis. Mississippi NPR and the Center for the Study of Southern Culture (including the Southern Foodways Alliance) at Ole Miss in Oxford will provide the basis for a journey through Mississippi history, food, music and literature.

We will meet our tour bus and guides Thursday, April 6, 11:00 A.M., at the Memphis International Airport. We will return to the airport Sunday, April 9 at 4:30 P.M. Please make your flight reservations to ensure availability.
