Please join us for an engaging discussion with Bill Luckett, the Mississippi Delta Project Fall Speaker. Luckett is a leader in the state of Mississippi who has dedicated his career to empowering Mississippians with a mix of smart lawyering, community development, political advocacy, and entrepreneurialism.
Luckett works to increase small business development and cultural tourism in his home town of Clarksdale, MS, believing that with increased economic prosperity, Mississippi will see positive change in race relations, public health, and education. Luckett is also an entrepreneur in his own right, and is the founder and co-owner of the Ground Zero Blues Club, which he co-owns with actor Morgan Freeman. He has also served as an executive producer and director on numerous movie and documentary projects set in Mississippi.
Luckett ran for governor of Mississippi in 2011, running on policy issues such as improving early education and increasing local business incentives.
His life work is broad, but his focus has always been on increasing the opportunities and aspirations of his fellow Mississippians.
We hope to see you there!
