Let’s face it, even though English a popular international language, there are over 6,900 of other languages around the world. According to Wikipedia, Chinese is the most popular language, followed by English, then Spanish, Hindi, Arabic, etc. So why the heck don’t website builders offer an easy and functional way of allowing you to create multi-language websites? Sure it’s a pretty quick way in building a bilingual website, but you are completely subject to how Google chooses to translate your text. It’s probably the easiest solution to implement, and yes as “smart” as Google is, its translation tool is never perfect and borderline unprofessional if you have a business website. It’s helpful in a way that your visitors will get the general idea of what you’re trying to say. So even if you’re willing to manually translate the text on your website, how are you going to create a website where the menu bar doesn’t show multiple pages of the same thing, but in different languages?
So here are some interesting approaches to building bilingual websites, with 3 of what we think are some of the best website builders in the industry today.
Since the template is already built to cater to multiple languages, this makes it quite easy for you to get your site up and running very quickly.
Squarespace is one of the better drag and drop website builders available in the market today. Having said that, they do have a tutorial to show you how to build a website with multiple languages.
If you visit the tutorial, and click on the website images there, you’ll also see some live multi-language sites in action. So we dug around and found a free tutorial on how you can convert a standard Weebly website to a multi-language website. Now it does require you to modify the codes of the template to make things work, but the author of this tutorial has generously laid out all the step by step instructions, as well as included all the codes for you to download and insert into your Weebly website. For countries aside from those that use English as the primary language, this is a very important feature to have especially for business-related websites. The solution with Weebly is a bit code intensive which may be a bit advanced for some users, but it’s one of the more interesting ones we’ve seen. At the meantime, the 3 “hacks” above are temporary solutions until the website builders create a native tool to make creating multilingual sites easier. Maybe just like you, at first we didn't have a darn clue about how to build a website, nevermind write half a line of code if our life depended on it! I have another question, i think it is an issue as well… Every country has their own legal reqs and restrictions. Also check out Shopify, as they can connect to over 70 payment gateways – I’m sure you can find one that works with your specific market! Creating a bilingual website is definitely a challenge especially if you aren’t good with coding. It looks like a very convenient tool to have an webpages translated, and pretty easy to implement.
I was wondering, once you’ve inserted the Bablic code into a website, will every single visitor to the site start seeing the translated page?
What might be even more helpful is some sort of mechanism that allows people to choose between languages to view. Thanks and well, hope these guys do not hire you because it seems like we could get answers from you directly more than from them! 1) You can add a live chat function to most of website builders, as there are a number of live chat services out there that can help you get things set up.
5) Wix and Weebly allow you to create membership gateways, so only your members can log in to view certain members only pages. Hope this helps, and if you have more specific questions you can always reach out to each website builder’s support team! But I do see how using Google Translate can be helpful though, at least as a temporary solution. What steps do I need to take in order to build a website for my small cake business?I have a small cake business and I need a website to further my business. A HUGE thanks to the "SBI!" software that made it possible for even an "e"dummy like me learn how to build a website that's now profitable internet business.
Now that youa€™ve looked at the sites, youa€™ll want to review four basic types of bridges so that you make the right choice for the site. When supporting its own weight and the weight of crossing traffic, every part of the arch is under compression. Today, materials like steel and prestressed concrete (see sidebar at right) have made it possible to build longer and more elegant arches, including a spectacular 1,700-foot span in New River Gorge, West Virginia.
One of the most revolutionary arch bridges in recent years is the Natchez Trace Parkway Bridge in Franklin, Tennessee, which was opened to traffic in 1994. In its most basic form, a beam bridge consists of a horizontal beam that is supported at each end by piers. Prestressed concrete (see sidebar at right) is an ideal material for beam bridge construction. But even the best materials can't compensate for the beam bridge's biggest limitation: its length.
Pleasing to look at, light, and strong, suspension bridges can span distances from 2,000 to 7,000 feeta€”far longer than any other kind of bridge. Because suspension bridges are light and flexible, wind is always a serious concerna€”as the residents of Tacoma, Washington can surely attest.
Attempts were made to stabilize the structure with cables and hydraulic buffers, but they were unsuccessful. To answer these questions, engineers began applying the science of aerodynamics to bridge design. Cable-stayed bridges may look similar to suspension bridgesa€”both have roadways that hang from cables, and both have towers. For medium-length spansa€”those between 500 and 2,800 feeta€”cable-stayeds are fast becoming the bridge of choice. In 1988, the Sunshine Skyway bridge in Tampa, Florida won the prestigious Presidential Design Award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Your visitors just have to click on the widget button and all your content will be auto-magically translated into another language of your visitors’ choice. But if you want to impress your visitors, win new businesses, sound professional, then Google Translate is probably not the best option for you. 3 versions of every single page will overload your menu bar, and really diminish the user-experience of your visitors. They’re not the best solutions in the world (I think you can only do that with a custom site – but you’d probably wouldn’t be interested in this article if you’re a hardcore coder anyway), but the solutions are functional.
So once you choose these templates, all you have to do is rename the menu bar items, update the content with your own, and you’re almost done, since the infrastructure of switching between languages has already been done by Wix. We wished that some of the larger drag & drop website builders could build in some native functions to help people create a better website with multiple languages.
We wanted to build a website to start a side business, and felt overwhelmed, confused & scared about how to actually do it, which builder to use, and making wrong decisions. They’re probably the most user friendly drag and drop website builder in the market right now. Wix and Squarespace are both free (Squarespace has a 14 day trial period) so give them a test drive to see if they work out for you!
So basically your tool just displays the website in another language, without the choice of flipping back and forth between various languages? Which website builder will have a way to enlarge font by clicking that larger A usually found on the upper right corner of a website? Is it safe to assume that i can advertise other links on the website(s) that i plan to develop, right? Can’t really beat manual translation with automated translation services like Google. A lot of business owners just don’t have the resources (time or financial resources) to commit to fully translating a website.
I decided to sell it in neighboring countries and found that the translation is surprisingly difficult.. Once you build your website and grow your business, you just might be the next Ace of Cakes! You are absolutely right. The first parliamentary elections in Afghanistan in more than 30 years create a new National Assembly and councils in all 34 provinces. Hamid Karzai is declared winner of the August presidential election, after second-placed opponent Abdullah Abdullah pulls out before the second round. NATO-led forces launch major offensive, operation Moshtarak, in bid to secure government control of southern Helmand province. Instead of pushing straight down, the weight of an arch bridge is carried outward along the curve of the arch to the supports at each end.
One of the most famous examples of their handiwork is the Pont du Gard aqueduct near NA®mes, France. It's the first American arch bridge to be constructed from segments of precast concrete, a highly economical material. The concrete withstands the forces of compression well, and the steel rods embedded within resist the forces of tension. Almost 24 miles long, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway consists of a pair of two-lane sections that run parallel to each other. The cables carry most of the bridgea€™s weight to the anchorages, which are embedded in either solid rock or massive concrete blocks.
In 1998, the Japanese will unveil the $7.6 billion Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, linking the islands of Honshu and Shikoku via Awaji Island.
At the time it opened for traffic in 1940, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge was the third-longest suspension bridge in the world.
On November 7, 1940, only four months after it opened, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapsed in a wind of 42 mpha€”even though engineers had ostensibly designed the structure to withstand winds of up to 120 mph. Why did a great span, more than half a mile in length and weighing tens of thousands of tons, spring to life in a relatively light wind? Technical experts still disagree on the exact cause of the bridge's destruction, but most agree the collapse had something to do with a complex phenomenon called resonance, the same force that can cause a soprano's voice to shatter a glass.
In a radial pattern, cables extend from several points on the road to a single point at the top of the tower. Take a piece of rope (about five feet long), and have a partner tie each end of the rope to each of your elbows. The first known sketch of a cable-stayed bridge appears in a book called Machinae Novae published in 1595, but it wasn't until this century that engineers began to use them. And even longer cable-stayeds are going up, though suspension bridges are still used for the very longest spans. Painted yellow to contrast with its marine surroundings, the Sunshine Skyway is one of the first cable-stayed bridges to attach cables to the center of its roadway as opposed to the outer edges, allowing commuters an unobstructed view of the magnificent bay. Once the pouring is complete, a tarp is placed over the form, and heat is applied to cure the cement.


But wouldn’t it be awesome if they built in some language switching mechanism that allow your visitors to switch to another language?
After years of trials & errors using different website builders, we're here to share our experiences with you.
I just wonder if you know any other good web page embeded or plug-in can translate English to Chinese fluently? I did alot of google-research, but i didn’t get any closer to the answer what gateways, what specifics are prefarable for Thailand.
I created a work around by creating two different menus and then copying on each page the corresponding English or Spanish menu.
I totally agree with your hope that website builders have built-in multilingual capabilities. That’s why the website builders I suggested above give you the infrastructure to create pages with different languages where you can translate manually and create unique pages for the translated content. So testing and tracking engagement with Google Translate can be helpful to see if a full translation is actually needed! These commissions fund the site in order to keep it up and running.I'd like to sincerely thank you all for your support as well as your purchases, comments, forum participation and visits.
These supports, called the abutments, carry the load and keep the ends of the bridge from spreading outward.
Built before the birth of Christ, the bridge is held together by mortar only in its top tier; the stones in the rest of the structure stay together by the sheer force of their own weight. Prestressed concrete also tends to be one of the least expensive materials in construction. The Southbound Lane, completed in 1956, comprises 2,243 separate spans, while the Northbound Lane, completed in 1969, includes 1,500 longer spans. True to its name, a suspension bridge suspends the roadway from huge main cables, which extend from one end of the bridge to the other. Inside the anchorages, the cables are spread over a large area to evenly distribute the load and to prevent the cables from breaking free.
Then pass the string over each standing book (letting some string hang loosely between the books). And how did slow, steady, and comparatively harmless motions suddenly transmogrify into a catastrophic force? The new bridge is wider, has deep, stiffening trusses under the roadway, and even sports a slender gap down the middlea€”all to dampen the effect of the wind. In a parallel pattern, cables are attached at different heights along the tower, running parallel to one another. In post-World War II Europe, where steel was scarce, the design was perfect for rebuilding bombed-out bridges that still had standing foundations. Compared to suspension bridges, cable-stayeds require less cable, can be constructed out of identical precast concrete sections, and are faster to build. Recently, in Boston, Massachusetts, a cable-stayed design was selected for a new bridge across the Charles Rivera€”even though cheaper options were proposed.
About 30,000 pounds of tension will be applied to the cable before ita€™s encased in concrete. This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” substantiates the viability of the sweat equity investment made through labor and cultural contributions by Cotton Pickers and other Plantation Workers.
These will show you how to do simple things at home or school that show you the forces at work. Notice how the stacks of books act as abutments, keeping the ends of the arch from spreading outward. Usually arch bridges employ vertical supports called spandrels to distribute the weight of the roadway to the arch below, but the Natchez Trace Parkway Bridge was designed without spandrels to create a more open and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This doesn't mean beam bridges aren't used to cross great distances; it only means that they must be daisy-chained together, creating what's known in the bridge world as a continuous span. Seven crossover lanes connect the two main sections and function as pull-over bays in emergencies.
To keep the structure stable, engineers have added pendulum-like devices on the towers to keep them from swaying and a stabilizing fin beneath the center deck to resist typhoon-strength winds. Not only did the deck sway sideways, but vertical undulations also appeared in quite moderate winds. In suspension bridges, the cables ride freely across the towers, transmitting the load to the anchorages at either end. Cable-stayed bridges have gone up in the United States only recently, but the response has been passionate. The following evening, Friday November 13, the “Cotton Pickers Ball” shall be held at 7:00pm, in da’ House of Khafre, located at 300 Main Street, Indianola. It is not the most elegant solution and I am sure the code is terrible but you got to do what you got to do. As a result, most of the live load is resting on the crowns of the two arches, which have been slightly flattened to better carry it. Notice how the top notch squeezes together in compression, while the bottom notch spreads apart under tension. Although impressive, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway bridge underscores the drawback of continuous spansa€”they are not well suited for locations that require unobstructed clearance below. Currently, the Humber Bridge in England has the world's longest center spana€”measuring 4,624 feet. Drivers reported that cars ahead of them would completely disappear and reappear from view several times as they crossed the bridge. Notice how the cable-stayeds transfer the load of the bridge (your arms) to the tower (your head).
All are encouraged to attend both events in costume attire worn in the cotton fields, such as “overalls and straw hats, etc.”The 1st Annual Historical Narrative Competition enhances this year’s Symposium. I really want to switch website builders because the Godaddy templates are soooo ugly but still trying to figure out if I will be able to do the same with another builder. Already the winner of many awards, the bridge is expected to influence bridge design for years to come. Mississippi Delta high school seniors and MVSU students will compete for a trophy and gift card provided by Khafre, Inc and Lost Pizza, Company. All projects must be delivered to the MVSU Social Sciences office “T” by 5:00pm November 5th, (or call organizers to arrange for pick up).

The University is driven by its commitment to excellence in teaching, learning, service, and research--a commitment resulting in a learner-centered environment that prepares critical thinkers, exceptional communicators, and service-oriented, engaged, and productive citizens. MVSU is fundamentally committed to positively affecting the quality of life and creating extraordinary educational opportunities for the Mississippi Delta and beyond. KHAFRE, Inc. Honoring the legacy of  “grandmamma-nem” in a university setting gives artistic and academic license to the pursuit of gaining more scholarship and international acceptance, of the contributions and sweat equity made by the people who picked cotton throughout the American South,” said Professor C.Sade Turnipseed, Executive Director of Khafre, Inc. As part of Khafre, Inc’s historic preservation efforts, a permanent marker will be placed on the MVSU campus in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta, and those who worked the repurposed cotton plantation for higher learning, MVSU.The Symposium is free admission.
Khafre, Inc is all about building monumental programs that allow reflection, reconnection, and renewal. This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values. The agency and resistance of these narratives will also reflect on the subtle and continuing impact of cotton on life in the Delta and throughout the South. The one-day event concludes with a good old fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball and Ancestral Celebration” at da’ House of Khafre located at 300 Main St. I have started another which is also starting to take off, and now "work is really getting in the way of work."

Julianne Malveaux; and, introduction by award-winning poet Chinaka Hodge the volume offers a balanced view of what our children face day-to-day, on the streets of America. Over two hundred years ago, the Akan Nation (West Africa) established the Adinkra Symbols to visually communicate a system of living for African people to observe and learn. Amazingly, just as with other inspired and spiritual writings, drawings, etc., the symbols are beautiful design concepts with meanings still relevant today. They bring clarity and resolve to the question, “What do we (the village) have to do to show support and love for each other and ultimately save ourselves and one another?” The experiences of today’s youth culture demonstrate a fundamental disconnect, to most people of previous generations. The young writers selected for this publication masterfully describe the challenge in dealing with today’s world.

Unfortunately, for most of his contemporaries (colleagues, family of friends) they never received the accolades, appreciation, or respect for their life-long work as cotton-pickers in the American South. David Matthews, MS Congressman Bennie Thompson, MS Senator Thad Cochran, National Parks Director Dr Jon Jarvis, Mr. Theodore Turnipseed, Sr., and millions of others understand the importance of sharing, and erecting a statue and National Park dedicated to the countless field workers of the American South. Though unrecognized and unappreciated, these people worked from sun up to sun down tilling, planting, chopping, picking and spinning cotton, in the blazing hot sun … This and many other horrifying conditions of the historic Mississippi Delta evoked the music we call “the Blues.”On May 21, 2014, during the last year of his life Mr. King accepted our call to become the “Honorary Chair” of Khafre, Inc, a Mississippi-based 501(3) not-for-profit organization. Maya Angelou as the Honorary Chair of the Cotton Pickers of America and the Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project. The plan is to build a thirty-foot high monument on twenty acres of cotton land along Highway 61, just outside the historic Black town Mound Bayou, MS. This is a historically rare opportunity to transform many lives in the Delta and engage conversations about race and social inequities in America. Sade Turnipseed is the Executive Director of Khafre, Inc and teaches American History at Mississippi Valley State University, in Itta Bena, the birthplace of Mr.
This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilts Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values. No one has ever “officially” said “thank you” to the people in the American South, who literally tilled the way to the economic greatness for many countries and regions around the world.
Somewhere along the way the respect and honor for their hard-earned sweat-equity investment in the wealth of others was lost and buried in the bloodstained, tear-soaked soils of the American South. Something “monumental,” needs to happen…like a National Park named the “Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center” along the Blues Highway 61.
Once the Monument is installed, the organizers’ plan is to turn it over to the federal government for the protection and honor that only this country can provide.
It shall serve as a permanent reminder and ever-present sign of respect for those whose hope for a brighter day wore thin, while working from kin to kain’t (can’t see in the morning to can’t see at night).The world must be reminded of the work ethic held by the people in the South…in most instances it was an honorable legacy … the tragedy is they were never properly compensated, nor thanked. King, (aka: The King of the Blues) will join the effort to build a National Monument in the Mississippi Delta.
King understands, as do all members of the Khafre, Inc family, that a healing will come through recognition and a true recounting of the history of cotton and its impact in the South.In September, 2009, Khafre, Inc, based in Indianola, Mississippi, embarked upon a journey designed to thank the sons and daughters of the South who helped, albeit it without accolades, fanfare, or even recognition, build the cotton empire that fueled the American economy for nearly two centuries.


The impetus for the project: Cotton Pickers of America and Sharecroppers Interpretative Center (hereafter referred to as the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex) is the need to thank those who toiled in the Delta soil for generations without the pay, appreciation, or the dignity they deserved.
The Cotton Pickers Monument Complex would not only help heal wounds that have festered for decades, but would also help to empower the generations of family members who have been negatively impacted by this unfortunate era in American history. This is truly a historic endeavor that has the rare opportunity of actually transforming lives, communities, and the conversations about race in America and throughout the world.           These deeply held convictions of education and empowerment are keys to improving the quality of life for all within the Delta. They have helped to catapult Khafre into numerous projects, which are all connected to the vision and mission of this value-driven and movement-oriented organization that is designed to provide historical, health related, and cultural education and outreach to the communities of the Mississippi Delta. Khafre has already helped young people successfully publish literature, prepare for careers in the television and radio broadcast industry, produce staged events and engage in healthy behaviors through diet and exercise, all with the assistance of grant dollars and strategic partnerships.The crowning work of Khafre remains the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex, a dream, which is coming closer to fruition, day by day, because of the unprecedented support of Mr.
We have also received Congressional acknowledgment and endorsement from United States Congressmen, Bennie Thompson and Danny Davis, official endorsements from United States Senators, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, and expressed support from Dr John Jarvis, National Parks Director. Carroll Van West and Rebecca Conard from Middle Tennessee State University’s History Department, along with the ongoing partnership with Mississippi Valley State University, has proven a significant benefit to our overall project. We are now ready to raise the $26 million dollars to make the Cotton Pickers Monument complex a reality. We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming your partnership in the building of this long overdue and much needed monument.It is time!Most sincerely,C. The goal is to obtain as much first-hand information as possible relating to the development of America’s Cotton Kingdom (aka the Delta).In the aftermaths of completing the academic study for a Doctorate in Public History at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Professor C. Turnipseed’s theory that perceptions of sharecropping, tenant farming, etc, will be altered in ways that are beneficial to the legacy of the American South when the memory of elders are shared. The monument site is envisioned to become a National Park; and thereby “the place” for memory and community sharing in the Mississippi Delta, for educational, economic development, and international tourism purposes.
King and former honorary chair Dr Maya Angelou who are determined to improve the legacy and social-economic status of Mississippi Delta residents. The purpose of the organization is to provide educational, lifestyle and cultural programs, build monuments and memorials to honor, celebrate, and recognize the rich and complex history of the Mississippi Delta and to positively impact the quality of life of those living in the Delta, especially the disproportionately poor African American community. There is no documented official acknowledgment of the people who tilled the path to America’s greatness. Somewhere along the way buried in the tear-soaked soils of the American South, the respect and honor for their hard-earned investment was lost.
The Cotton Pickers of America Monument, Sharecroppers Interpretive Center, and Cotton Kingdom Trail make the case for building a National Park that offers a small token of appreciation for their tireless uncompensated work.

I whole-heartedly agree with the editor that the African American community has proven to the world an uncanny, though unreciprocated, ability to be forgiving of past deeds of injustice, brutality and cruelty at the voting polls, and socially in their community service groups, churches and everyday lives.
This point should not be lost on the fact that many of those injustices happened here, in Indianola, Mississippi, to some amazingly strong and resilient individuals like Fannie Lou Hamer and all those who came before her.
But, I can’t help but wonder why the White community isn’t reciprocating and showing the same confidence and trust in racial relations?As Smith indicates, the incumbent received “between 32 and 37% of the votes in the three wards with large Black majorities, despite going up against two black opponents, with strong followings.
That’s impressive for a white candidate in a city and region with a history of racially divided politics.” I agree. When we examine the voter polls in the wards that are predominately African American, reflected is a general evenness for all candidates, be they Black or White. The same, however, cannot be said about the two wards that reflect the primarily White community. I submit to you the following:In wards I, and II, which are the two wards with the largest white population of voters, we see results that reflect an uncompromising resistance to acceptance and change. With an overall total of 952 votes cast: 732 went to the White candidate and 220 for the two Blacks, combined)…check that!
Surely, it cannot be left up to one segment of the community, and not the other.I truly wish Smith had stressed this very critical point, instead of throwing shade on the outcome of a campaign I have yet to wage. And for the record, as a citizen, it is my right to be afforded the opportunity to run a fair and unbiased race for mayor, without subtle suggestions that it is a waste of my time, as inferred in his editorial.
But, then again maybe he knows more than I about how citizens of wards I and II will ultimately vote. And to also trust that the leaders of this community will look out for their best interest, politically, economically and socially. After all we live in a community that is 84% African American with a poverty rate that is fast approaching 40% and a public school system that is in deplorable condition, both physically and academically, even under the watchful eye of the government, yet there is no outrage…from either the White side, or the Black side of town.
And, I have never believed it was necessary to wait until political season to demonstrate my commitment to the people in my community. If, by chance I am truly embraced by all members of all wards of this city, I believe people will witness an amazing transformation in a relatively short period of time. It’s “almost” like magic…I predict things will begin to unfold in a substantive way like the neighborhoods will brighten, crime decreases and the impoverished mindset disappears. And I am passionate enough to find the tools to help remedy the concerns that create stagnation and distrust.
Please remember, we are a people who come from a very long tradition of women who made a way out of no way.My overall ambition and hope for this city is to develop a strategic plan that enables a steady stream of culturally enriched projects that insures economic development for the future growth and safety in this city. So programs that not only engage everyone, but present real opportunities for career enhancements and social activities are critical.

For the past three years, I have been sitting relatively quietly completing the doctorate in history.
Now, I am ready to shake up this town with some bold ideas and ever increasing standards for excellence. I look forward to being a significant force in this community, by helping the White community too recognize the benefits of building relationships that they can trust in leadership positions. We MUST work together to improve our community—by encouraging EVERYONE to clean on our streets, bayou, parks, etc. We have some huge unmet challenges here in Indianola, and how YOU decide to vote On December 10, 2013, is vital to our success. Also, please be sure to come to this year's event in your overalls, or cotton pickin' clothes. The event is the impetus that gave rise to the “Remigration Home from Chicago to Mississippi” cultural movement organized by music promoters Gus Redmond and Robert Terrell.
Legendary blues and gospel performers Otis Clay, Syl Johnson and Marshal Thompson (founder and lead singer of the ChiLites); along with promoter Gus Redmond will lead the way back home to Mississippi in an effort to support the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project in the historical Cotton Kingdom AKA the Mississippi Delta.
Though the Ball is a “Black Tie Affair” Overalls or other “cotton pickin” attire are encouraged and expected.“I am so pleased that we have partnered with Khafre to host an event of this magnitude,” said Dr.
The discussions and historical presentations will reflect cutting-edge research, innovative practices and foundational values.
Additionally, two noted scholars from Mali’s Cotton Manufacturing and Distribution will present via Skype.MVSU participants in the program include Dr. John Jones, interim provost.As part of the celebration, Khafre plans to erect a permanent marker on the site in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta and in commemoration of the significance of this historical event.
This will be a day of stimulating discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values.

These artists and many others will perform on da historical Front Porch stage where the legendary bluesman Sam Chatmons music room door is gracefully hinged.
The door, the traditional quilts, the African art, the sweet smell of Soul Food and the Delta cotton provide a rural sophistication and ambiance that is reminicient of the culture and folk art once owned and coveted by grandmamma-nem. Indeed, it is "The home for artful giving, music and songs," as Chicago-based Blues promoter Lynn Orman Weiss described da' House on her most recent visit to the Delta. And, since da' House is located at the epicenter of the Cotton Kingdom, visitors can expect that authentic soothing, and often times healing, Mississippi Delta experience to be dosed up in abundantly royal fashion, every time they come to da' House! Co-owners Robert Terrell and C.Sade Turnipseed extend a personal and heartfelt invitation for everyone to come on out to da House and help celebrate two-years of Delta art, music and culture.
