On our final day of shooting, we drove throughout Phillips county to shoot the ports on the Mississippi river, signs of the larger farming corporations, and roads south of Elaine. We also got drone footage of The Mound as well as the site of the massacre (as described by Ida B. Wells in her writings on Elaine).
The afternoon ended on a poetic note as we interviewed James White at his newly opened store on Main St. James discussed what he hopes to accomplish here and how he can best serve his community. We purchased some of his large pepper plants and thanked him for his help throughout the week. The cash register clacked and rang, concluding what would be our last footage of Elaine this trip.← BackNext →
