A NOTE FROM THE SCIENCE DIRECTOR


Hometown Science was formed to improve the conditions of people who live in marginalized communities. Our first target is the Mississippi Delta.


The Delta is an extraordinary place. It is the wellspring of a sound that changed the world. There is hardly a human alive today who has not heard music that was influenced by the sound that rolled up out of the rich soil and rich souls of the Mississippi Delta. The Delta is a little island in space and time that changed the way the world sounds.


We aim to do science in the Delta by building a permanent, hometown-centered, human bridge between the University of Mississippi and hometowns in the Delta.


Beyond this proximal intention, we believe that there are lessons to be learned in the Delta that could be meaningful to marginalized populations around the world. Maybe, just maybe, the Mississippi Delta could change the way the world sounds...Again.


With my warm regards,


Kelly G. Wilson
