Home of the blues, where cotton once was king, the fraying Mississippi Delta town of Clarksdale today is a place of both fierce passion and rampant despair — or sometimes, just apathy. But dig between the rows of endless fields and weathered shacks, and what turns up are compelling reasons to care, great resilience, and hope for the future of this town sitting at the crossroads of history.
