W. Ralph Eubanks is a visiting professor and writer-in-residence at the University of Mississippi, where he is affiliated with the Center for the Study of Southern Culture. Join Eubanks as he discusses his upcoming book, which weaves together personal history, archival research, reporting, blues and popular culture, and interviews with current Delta residents to tell the region’s history and explore why many residents of this iconic region of Mississippi persist in trying to transform a place that has been deemed broken and beyond repair.

Eubanks has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and was a National Fellow at New America. His writing has been published in the “American Scholar,” the “Georgia Review,” the “Hedgehog Review,” the “New Yorker,” “Vanity Fair,” and the “Virginia Quarterly Review.” He received his BA from the University of Mississippi and an MA in English language and literature at the University of Michigan.
