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
