Synopsis:
From renowned music filmmaker Robert Mugge, 'Last of the Mississippi Jukes' is a tribute to the Juke joints of Mississippi. From the single-room plantation shacks where the blues was born a hundred years ago - to the handful of urban and rural lounges that are rapidly becoming extinct – 'Last of the Mississippi Jukes' captures the essence of the blues and the Juke joint legacy. The movie documents and celebrates the origin of blues in America and an important part of our musical heritage...one that cannot be forgotten.
'Last of the Mississippi Jukes' takes you on a musical journey (2002) to Clarksdale, Mississippi's ground zero blues club, established by actor Morgan Freeman and his partner to recreate the mood and style of a traditional Juke joint. Then, on to Jackson's remarkable 30-plus-year-old subway lounge, a thriving urban club now on the verge of losing it's home in the legendary and now rapidly crumbling summers hotel, Jackson's first black-owned hotel.
