Tunica set framework for Weeden
Although miles and time now separate him from it, for Kenneth Weeden, Tunica will always be home.
Weeden was born in Tunica at Dr. Noble’s Clinic in November 1952, on the day before Eisenhower was elected. His parents were Rogers S. Weeden and Nellie Williams Bland Weeden.
They lived in the North Subdivision, which had recently been built to provide a place to live for blacks that didn’t work on a plantation. In fact, Weeden’s grandfather, who was a carpenter from a long line of highly skilled craftsmen, built several houses in the Old Sub, some of which still stand today.
