Longtime Blues Preservation Organization Garners Prestigious Oakley Award
Mt. Zion Memorial Fund wins the Oakley Award
from the Association for Gravestone Studies
|The MZMF erected the marker for Charley Patton in 1991|
We are also currently working with St. John MB Church in Camden, MS to erect a memorial to Belton Sutherland, who folklorist Worth Long and Alan Lomax featured in the film The Land Where the Blues Began. To learn more, please click HERE or GoFundMe
|Ruth and Moore first collaborated on the discovery of|
the military marker of Son Simms in 2014, but Ruth's
coimetromania extends much farther back and connects
to his love for older photographic processes.
We thank you for your work for and on such important historic and fragile cemeteries. Your award will be presented at the annual conference of the AGS at the University of Alabama this spring.
With kind regards,
Anne Tait Chair Awards Committee
