May 20, 2014. Chris A. Davis, a CWU History student won the Raymond A. Smith Award for Scholarship at the College of Arts and Humanities annual banquet last Monday. His paper, "I'm Going Home Before Long: Blues Music as Resistance in the Mississippi Delta," is notable for its strong scholarship and innovative use of the lyrics of Blues tunes to draw a picture of life in Mississippi's Delta area around the time of the Great Mississippi River flood of 1927.
Davis wrote the paper for Dr. Lacy Ferrell in History 481. The award is named after the late Professor Raymond A. Smith, longtime member of the CWU History Department, head of Central's Humanities Program for over 20 years and masterful raconteur.
