How exciting it was to have a production crew follow me in Clarksdale, the blues crossroads of the Mississippi Delta. I am honored and thrilled to be included in a movie that will be featured in a six-month exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles beginning in April. This exhibition will showcase 500 curated images of America from the historic Library of Congress collection. The movie’s production crew also joined me in the Library of Congress Thomas Jefferson Building for an interview and exploration of the magnificent Reading Room and Great Hall. These are some of the behind-the-scenes views of the three days we spent together for the filming.
