Blues Trail Marker for Jessie Mae Hemphill

Hey Jessie Mae Hemphill friends and fans! We are looking to get a Blues Trail Marker for Jessie Mae which would be installed near her headstone (Senatobia Memorial Cemetary). We need to raise $4000 to do this. Please help us commemorate Jessie Mae and her legacy by making a donation to this very honorable project.

Update- additional info below:

The local info to include is that the funds ($6000) are being raised for by the Tate County Economic Development Foundation for two (2) music markers- one for Jessie Mae (Blues Trail) and one for
O. B. McClinton for the Country Music Trail. We will accept any amount of donation, payable to TCEDF, but there are two levels of sponsor patronage:
$100 for individuals
$250 for businesses

Patrons will be recognized with a party, mention in future press materials and other ways to be determined.

The mailing address for TCEDF is:
135 N. Front St.
Senatobia, MS 38668
(662) 562-8715
