Griot Grit

The documentary, "Griot Grit", was produced by the True Delta Project.

A group of dedicated teachers and students spread hope in the Mississippi Delta by cultivating the arts and a sense of community in an after-school program called Griot Arts. Inspired by the Griots of West Africa, they impart love and respect for the music and culture of Clarksdale, while nurturing a sense of responsibility for carrying on tradition and forging ways of strengthening civic bonds.
