We Visited The Grave Site of Blues Legend Robert Johnson

Robert Johnson is a blues legend whose life is shrouded in mystery and darkness. From the day he supposedly sold his soul to the devil at the Crossroads, to his untimely death at only 27 years old, stories of his ties to the underworld fascinate fans. The final mystery of Johnson's life was his burial place. Three different churches in Mississippi claimed to be his final resting place, but as people of color were buried in unmarked graves, and the name of the church listed on his death certificate is not an exact match to any of the locations, his actual grave site remained unconfirmed until only recently. We got to visit the church and cemetery where it is now considered confirmed that Robert was laid to rest.
