There are two reputable organizations we are aware of which are placing markers on Blues Musicians’ Graves, often on unmarked graves.
One is the Mt. Zion Memorial Fund; the other is The Killer Blues Headstone Project.
Here is a video about The Killer Blues Headstone Project.
Here are a few of the grave stones placed by the Mt. Zion Memorial Fund which we have visited:
Memphis Minnie, New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, Walls, Mississippi
Mississippi Fred McDowell, Hammond Hill Missionary Baptist Church, Como, Panola County, Mississippi
