One of ACER’s (Action Communication and Education Reform, Inc.) areas of work is Project CAM. Project CAM (cultural arts and multi-media) is an intergenerational, technology, communication and education program. The Grassroots Blues Festival is a project of Project CAM that began in 2003 in an effort to help implement its program of work in the community and at the same time to provide a platform for traditional blues artists and obscure blues artists, to cultivate and celebrate a musical art form that is unique to our Mississippi Heritage. The Grassroots Blues Festival is a celebration of our rich cultural heritage of blues music, and the artists who demonstrated mastery of their artistic discipline and quality of work. The Grassroots Blues Festival is an annual event that takes place on the 2nd Saturday of July.
