                                        2020 Year End Report


It has been a challenging year for the KBHP to say the least. However, we are very happy to report, amid all the difficulties, we were able to purchase 7 headstones for blues artists lying in unmarked graves. They are Delia Green, Ollie “Buster” Benton, Arbee Stidham, Edith Wilson, Edgar “Piano C. Red” Fain, Jack Myers, and Macavine Hayes. 

After 12 years we have purchased 129 headstones in 16 states at a cost of $82,627.00. We still have a long list of individuals in need of headstones and an even longer list of ones whom we are searching for their grave sites. Please go to our website www.killerblues.net to donate and learn more about these artists and all of the blues men and women that have been honored and recognized by us. If interested in helping us out, please visit the “Help us out” page and begin there.  

Remember to sign up for Amazon Smile so KBHP can receive a portion from every purchase you make! 

Lastly, thank you all for your continued support.
