Down in Mississippi

Photo by Talbot Easton Selby

The Po Monkey's Lounge, a former sharecropper's shack, stands in the middle of a cotton field 2 1/2 miles west of Merigold, MS. Mr. Willie Seaberry, proprietor and cotton farmer, lives in a small back room of the lounge. Since the late 1950's, two nights a week his home opens to the public. Mondays play host to exotic dancers from Memphis. This was Thursday, family night.
