Video: William Ferris on the music of survival

UNC’s Endeavors magazine recently profiled William Ferris, documentarian of Mississippi Delta blues music and author of Give My Poor Heart Ease: Voices of the Mississippi Blues. The hardcover edition of the book includes a CD and DVD of audio and video recordings made by Ferris in 1960s and ’70s Mississippi. The enhanced ebook version of Give My Poor Heart Ease embeds that archival audio and video throughout the text of the ebook for a truly multimedia, multisensory learning experience. Endeavors produced a fabulous video that we wanted to pass along. Enjoy.
