To support the reinstallation of New Symphony of Time to focus on Mississippi culture through musical genres such as blues, rock and roll, and gospel, all of which flourished there before spreading to other regions. Inspired by Margaret Walker’s lines of poetry, “I gave music to the world/and called it Syncopation,” the presentation reflects the museum’s diverse community and its interests. A publication accompanies the exhibition.
