Mississippi Arts Hour


The Mississippi Arts Hour| Gloria Gipson Suggs

Lauren Rhoades talks with Gloria Gipson Suggs, a visual artist whose work seeks to preserve heritage and cultural pride. A native and resident of Marshall County, Gloria was named the 2022 South Arts State Fellow of Mississippi. After several accidents brought her twenty-plus-year career in education to a halt, she turned to art in her recovery. Her work depicts people, places, and things from the Civil War, Depression, and Desegregation Eras as passed down through folklore, written and oral history, photographs, and her own experience. Gloria is also a musician and the author of several books of fiction and poetry.
