Today’s feature: MISSISSIPPI GODDAMN
This great piece deserves the spotlight.
Hat tip, Rikyrah. Thank you!
Mississippi’s image has always been dominated by the conservative white evangelical set, the political and social segment of the state that has, over the past 200 years, earned Mississippi a reputation as perhaps the most racist state in America.
Whose #Mississippi? The black writers in the current U.S. literary pantheon, that’s who. Excellent, @NeelyTucker @BitterSouth @Wralpheubanks @angiecthomas @NTrethewey @KieseLaymon https://t.co/CfZgb2U0fB
