From Clarksdale & Coahoma County A History by Linton Weeks, p. 120:
By 1921, Clarksdale was known throughout the United States as the “Magic City.” According to a glowing report in the Wall Street Journal of July 27, 1921, Clarksdale was “the richest agricultural city of the United States in proportion to its population . . “
Psalm 103:15-19 (ESV)
As for man, his days are like grass;
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
and its place knows it no more.
But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children’s children,
to those who keep his covenant
and remember to do his commandments.
The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,
and his kingdom rules over all.
Our Father in heaven,
We declare that Jesus is the Rock on which Clarksdale stands, not mammon. Amen.
