Memphis & Mississippi
are like nowhere else
in the USA and are
recognised worldwide
as the Land of the American Kings…

 

Of musical kings such as B.B. King, the blues legend; the

king of country music, Jimmie Rodgers; the king of the

blues, Robert Johnson; and the greatest king of them all,

Elvis Presley, the "King of Rock’n’Roll". Of literary kings

such as William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams and

John Grisham who made Memphis & Mississippi the

backdrop for so many of their prize-winning works. Of king

cotton, the white gold of the south that brought great

wealth, slavery, secession and civil war. Of the mighty

Mississippi, king of rivers, winding 2,320 miles through

the heart of America. Of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the

slain civil rights leader and activist who inspired millions

to defy racism and segregation peacefully and

non-violently to transform America.


For an American experience like no other,
