A Conversation With: James E. Cherry

Josh Garcia

For years I’ve been hearing the name James Cherry.

Cultures of Jackson: 2nd Annual Jackson International Food and Art Festival

Cultures of Jackson

Tranquil excitement, an exotic assortment of colors, and upbeat music greets my senses as I walk through downtown Jackson. I can't make out the words of the deep melody that I hear, but it reminds me of the Turkish music so dear to my heart. Walking through the streets of East Main and Highland, I feel more like I am back in Mexico City or Istanbul rather than West Tennessee.
