1. Morris' Secret Helped Pass Civil Rights Cold Case Laws -

Charlie Morris was known for decades as a political operative who defined a brand of grassroots-style campaigning and political involvement in North Memphis.

For the last couple of days there has been this brewing story that Kim Kardashian West was on her way to the city to meet with Alice Marie Johnson, the convicted drug dealer sentenced to life in prison who was pardoned by President Donald Trump last week after serving 21 years in federal prison. And that is just what happened Wednesday – almost. The meeting was in Southaven. And, according to People, it included lessons in how to use Snapchat. The meeting included an interview with the Today show that will air Thursday morning.

6. Line Between ‘Get Out the Vote,’ ‘Crossover’ Melts In Campaign Heat -

7. Last Word: The Heat and The Memphis Identity and Stackhouse to Grizz -

What is it that draws us to social events outside when it is this hot? This is a topic where the specifics counsel against generalities. So it could be argued that the beckoning of summer heat – pre-summer heat in this case – that smothers you after greeting you like a brick wall at any door opening is an indication of the degree to which you are of Memphis.

17. Last Word: Big River Summer, AuthenticAfrican Revealed and 100 North Main -

It’s the month that doesn’t have a festival with its name in the title, the month after the month that does have a festival bearing its name. It’s the month of heat and sun and heat lightning, lightning bugs and tourists and no school.

Welcome to June.

27. Last Word: Bar-B-Foo, Grizz Draft Prospects and The Hampline -

Alleged sightings of Dave Grohl at the barbecue contest Thursday in Tom Lee Park and a photograph from a distance that might or might not be the head Foo Fighter.

28. Last Word: Being Fourth, Barbecue and Davos on the Delta and Steamboat Exit -

Not. Top. Three. The Grizz got the fourth pick of the NBA draft in Tuesday’s draft lottery in Chicago. Grizz president of business operations Jason Wexler had probably the best reaction on Twitter: “So for the next 5 weeks we are in a window where everyone can be wrong and everyone can be right at the same time.” The memory of Hasheem Thabeet’s arrival in Memphis looms large in this uncertainty and draft day is the only thing that can make that memory fade. At least for now, that image just got a bit sharper. And it becomes more vivid every time between now and the draft in June that you start a sentence with “The Grizz could still…”

29. Last Word: Mimeo Move, Food Fight and Sundquist for Blackburn -

There aren’t any renderings just yet of what a second convention center hotel with the 100 North Main Building as its centerpiece would look like.
