Brother Robert’s Memphis

28 Aug


The memoir of growing up with bluesman Robert Johnson is a little closer to life thanks to your help. There’s a new reward to backers of the Brother Robert kickstarter campaign. In gratitude for your $15 donation you’ll receive a print of this original pen and ink drawing of the block where Johnson’s family lived, as the neighborhood appeared during his time. Taken from an archival photograph, the scene depicts a location that has as strong a claim as any to being the site of the true crossroads. You’ll have to wait for the book to learn the rest of that story. But thanks to you, it’s happening. The project really wouldn’t be possible without your help.
