The Future Begins With Destruction

8 Mar

Here’s a history meets the headlines longview. The better part of a year in the making, “Memphis Burning” follows the smoke signals and the millions to the story of inequality, power, and race in a vital American city. Along the way, you’ll meet Bob Church, Boss Crump, witness burning, bombing, and veer into a sex scandal. Thanks to Places Journal, Andrea Morales, and the Kresge Foundation.

History connects with the headlines in this salon.com piece, recalling Bob Church, an early 20th century political genius and a forgotten triumph of African-American voters.
