Civil rights tour group stops in Greenwood

A tour group with members from across the United States stopped in Greenwood on Tuesday. The stop was part of the “On the Road to Freedom” civil rights tour, which is held by the New York City-based magazine The Nation. While in Greenwood, group members were led by Sylvester Hoover on one of his Delta Blues Legend Tours. The blues tour was capped with a meal prepared by Mary Hoover and was hosted by the Museum of the Mississippi Delta. Enjoying a meal are Andre Lee, left, of New York and Walker Lundy of Walnut Creek, California. The tour started in Jackson, and the first stop was in Greenwood. The tour will continue, making stops in Little Rock, Arkansas; Memphis; and Alabama cities of Birmingham, Selma and Montgomery. More photos, Page 3.
