Emily Jones, archivist for Delta State University shares her traveling exhibit with the University of Alabama community. Grocery Stor[i]es combined the impact of the images with oral histories held in the University Archives as well as those collected specifically for this project. The exhibit includes the text and context for the images. In their own words and with their own images, the Mississippi Delta Chinese will tell their stories of being “between black and white”. Arranging these images in categories such as “foodways,” “special events,” “school days,” etc., the images and text will provide a platform for today’s learners to discuss the unique history as it relates to the MS Delta Chinese and how this group affected changes in the Delta and beyond.
