Heritage & Hope: Bessie Johnson’s Folk Art Revival

Rooted in the soil of Bessie Johnson’s backyard is a longleaf pine tree. To see its tawny, rutted bark, you’ll pass two white churches – the kind of unembellished structures that sing of heritage and tradition – in the rural Tibbee Community of West Point, Mississippi. There, she keeps the craft of pine needle basket weaving alive, sharing with her community the art that is her foundation.
