GRAVY DISPATCHES FROM THE GULF COAST

SFA member and Gravy contributer Ashley Hall has embarked on a journey to collect stories relating to the effects of the oil spill along the Gulf Coast from Mississippi to the Florida panhandle. Her trip is part personal, part professional. Ashley felt a calling to experience the effect the Gulf oil spill is having on the coast and saw fit to collaborate with the SFA to collect voices and images she encounters along the way. She'll be traveling from Biloxi to Apalachicola as a field correspondent for Gravy, the SFA foodletter, revisiting SFA oral history subjects when possible and recording her experiences on a blog she's set up for the project, Third Coast Byways. We'll share relevant entries here, but visit the blog directly to experience Ashley's journey in its entirety.
