WKNO to Air Memphis Documentary on Cotton

Posted By on Wed, Sep 6, 2006 at 4:00 AM

The Story of Cotton, a documentary by Memphian Willie Bearden, will air Thursday, September 7th, on WKNO at 8 p.m.

Bearden says his documentary is the culmination of two years work on the Cotton Museum at the Memphis Cotton Exchange at Front and Union. The museum tells the story of the Memphis cotton business in the context of the Mississippi Delta and the South.

The program has some tough competion; it airs opposite the season premier of "Survivor.” Bearden suggests that viewers consider taping one show and watching it later.
