Race, Representation & Photography in 19th-Century Memphis is richly textured and illuminates the multi-layered efforts of black people to create new representations of themselves, their families and instituions, and enables us to better comprehend their strivings. She brilliantly and persuasively argues that the photographers laid the foundation for what would become the "New Negro" movement in the early twentieth century.

This study observes the role of place in the local LGBT community and movement of Memphis, Tennessee. I gathered information from fifteen interviews, including LGBT Memphians, activists, preachers, and public figures to show what aspects of place have been the most significant in shaping the nature of the local movement, which has been growing since the early 2000s. I suggest that the conservatism, race, and religiosity of Memphis have played the most significant role.
