Summary
In 'An Unseen Light', eminent and rising scholars offer a multidisciplinary examination of Memphis's role in African American history during the twentieth century. The city was at the epicenter of the civil rights movement on April 4, 1968, when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel. But the essays in this work broaden the scholarly understanding of the black freedom struggle in Memphis. In chronicling the significant events that took place in the city and its citizens' many contributions to the black freedom struggle, they show how Memphis has been largely overlooked by historians of the civil rights movement
