A Time Not Here

Essay by Randall Kenan

Documentary photographer Norman Mauskopf delves into African American life in the Mississippi Delta. The book is a revealing chronicle of the shared rural and agricultural community that gave birth to the blues. From the cotton fields to juke joints, revivals to front-porch get-togethers, Mauskopf’s exploration of this tradition-rich culture documents the many ways in which the African American community has drawn on the past, keeping intact its rituals and a way of life in the American South. Mauskopf is the author of Rodeo (1985) and Dark Horses (1988).
