Description

The Atlanta Monthly looks at how Tunica County, in the Mississippi Delta, has long been among the poorest places in the US, but casino gambling is changing Tunica's prospects--the golf courses are sprouting and retirees are soon to move in. Meanwhile, blacks, Tunica's majority, are not sharing in the boom and are under financial pressure to leave the land that their labor transformed from a vast swamp. (January 1996)
