Blind Willie McTell: A Statesboro Legacy

This exhibition features information and research on the local history of Statesboro, local legend Blind Willie McTell, his impact on early rhythm and blues music, and his connection to the community. It was curated by graduate student, Megan Winters, who is pursuing a certificate in Public History.

This is a companion exhibition which features information to better contextualize the student work of the senior Capstone course to benefit otherwise uninformed patrons of the gallery who are unfamiliar with the course or the community.

Blind Willie's influence can even be seen today in the British alternative rock group "Kill It Kid" whose name is taken from his song of the same name. The delta blues influence is clearly evident in their music.
