2. Tracing Civil Rights Struggle Through Travel -

Attention is on Memphis this year with the MLK50 commemoration to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the 50th anniversary of his assassination on April 4, 1968.

12. Editorial: Fairgrounds Redevelopment Is About More Than Buildings -

The Mid-South Fairgrounds contains parking lots, a few buildings, a stadium and an arena in a central location. What we project onto that is another matter, as the question of what to do at the Fairgrounds opens up a closet where resentment is packed in with a hatbox or two of gilded memories and a file cabinet of plans.

On a recent arrival at the Memphis International Airport, I marveled that my watch hadn’t even been set to Central Time before I heard buzz of the RiverArtsFest, and acquired a hot tip to visit Wild Bill’s for a “real blues club” experience.

16. 100-Year-Old Question -

The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art was already more than 10 years old when Sears, Roebuck & Co. opened its nearby Crosstown store in 1927 and the rest of the neighborhood began to fill in, so it was shock for many Memphians to hear about the possibility of the iconic institution leaving the only home it’s ever known.

Two state troopers also died in a helicopter crash that weekend.
