Clementine Hunter’s Juke Joint

At Melrose Plantation

African House still stands

(restoration completed)

& murals by Clementine Hunter

(also restored)

show the juke joint

down the road

on Saturday night

maybe a knife fight

dance and swing

til shots ring

will silence the song

all the people gone

dVerse prompt to write a quadrille using the word juke. Louisiana artist Clementine Hunter painted a juke joint as part of her murals on the walls of African House.
