Memphis has always been a place where cultures come together to have a wreck; black and white, rural and urban, poor and rich. The music in Memphis is more than a soundtrack to these confrontations. It is the document of it.

From Mainstream to New Media: Finding Common Ground to Grow Participatory Democracy

This is the "home" wiki page for the Jan. 11-12, 2007, Journalism That Matters gathering in Memphis, Tenn. -- a structured dialog, strategies exploration and project-launching collaboration among mainstream-media veterans, innovators and reformers. Convenors included Christopher Peck, editor of The Memphis Commercial Appeal; Geneva Overholser of the Univ. of Missouri; Bill Densmore of the Media Giraffe Project at UMass Amherst; Mike Fancher, editor-at-large of the Seattle Times and facilitators Peggy Holman and Stephen Silha. Some 40 participants gathered on Thurs., afternoon, Jan. 11 at the Memphis Marriott to share their aspirations for journalism and for the one-night and one-day gathering. They then met all day on Friday, Jan. 12 at the Memphis Cotton Museum. From this page, you can view photos of the gathering, link to written materials we read in advance and read our running informal notes of many sessions.
