Screenings
In 1941, folklorist Alan Lomax was sent from the Library of Congress to the Mississippi Delta to record an oral history of the Blues. Hauling 500 pounds of recording equipment powered by his car battery, Lomax ventured across nameless roads to discover the most beautiful and harrowing songs ever sung.
