The Blues singers like Robert Johnson, B.B. King and Bessie Smith, capture for me the ragged energy, injustice, triumph, and not quite triumph of life in the Delta. I loved going by the places that the Blues legends were from and seeing the historic markers. It's just as important as seeing those Civil Rights historic markers. Both are important. We stopped at the Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale and I added my love note, written with a Sharpie, to my husband, Brad Laird, and I added our weddng date, my little tribute at Ground Zero.
