Scripts: Sketches and Tales of Urban Mississippi

ByC. Liegh McInnis

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Scripts: Sketches and Tales of Urban Mississippi addresses the lingering issues of Afro-Mississippi struggles while contextualizing present-day issues in the frame of history. The opening story, "Transition," is the tale of a family's flight from rural Mississippi to Jackson, Mississippi. The following story, "Poni's Trail," takes the reader to New York City, back to rural Mississippi and finally Jackson, Mississippi. Along the way, you meet engaging characters with anger and confusion. One theme that resonates through the pages is Art. The reader is provided with what art and making art means to the characters. The reader also gets a glimpse of some historical issues, including the explanation and history of the HBCU existence, its failures, and successes. While the short stories are entertaining, they provide a sociological and psychological view of the people of Mississippi.
