Summary
During the early 1970s, filmmaker Michael Ford lived in and documented traditional music, farming practices, blacksmithing, molasses-making, and other aspects of community life in La Fayette, Marshall, Tate, and Panola Counties, Mississippi. Portions of his material were published in his documentary film Homeplace (1975) and his collection is housed in the American Folklife Center's archives. To discuss his experiences in the 1970s as well as talk about his ongoing work documenting life and culture in contemporary Mississippi, Mr. Ford joins American Folklife Center archivist Todd Harvey for a program highlighting his work. Michael Ford was a featured presenter in the Benjamin Botkin Folklife Lecture series on June 5, 2014, sponsored by the American Folklife Center.
