MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis is a city on a mission for greatness.
It’s a city on the edge, a city divided. But it’s ours, and this is our chance for a better tomorrow.
It’s time to heal old wounds, and create new stories of success, by educating our children and by making sure there are enough jobs and everyone feels safe in their own home.
We took a look at the past, present and future, then held a roundtable to discuss what needs to be done.

I) How Memphis’ past impacts its present and future

III) Why Memphis’ economy struggles to improve, and what we can do to change that
IV) Why it takes more than police to win the war against crime
V) Why closing the racial divide is crucial for Memphis’ success
VI) How lack of leadership negatively affects Memphis, and how we can fix it
VII) How three cities overcame some of the same challenges Memphis faces
