A vibrant tribute to the rich and unique culture of Memphis, Beale Street is the most visited tourist attraction in Tennessee. But just like the soulful blues ballads that call Beale home, the history of this downtown district echoes with hardship and heartache. From the transcendent sounds of W.C. Handy to the rubble of crumbling buildings and a miraculous rebirth, Beale Street has undergone many incarnations. In this remarkable firsthand account, author John Elkington takes readers on an incredible journey of revitalization that few believed possible when he embarked upon the task in the early 1980s. Step inside the drama of politics, the exhausting planning stages, collapsing landmarks and the hunt for the great B.B. King, and witness a living testament to the power of devotion and the enchantment of revival.

Demonstrating the intimate connections among our public, political, and personal lives, these essays by Robert Cantwell explore the vernacular culture of everyday life. A keen and innovative observer of American culture, Cantwell casts a broad and penetrating intelligence over the cultural functioning of popular texts, artifacts, and performers, examining how cultural practices become performances and how performances become artifacts endowed with new meaning through the transformative acts of imagination. Cantwell's points of departure range from the visual and the literary--a photograph of Woody Guthrie, or a poem by John Keats--to major cultural exhibitions such as the World's Columbian Exposition. In all these domains, he unravels the implications for community and cultural life of a continual migration, transformation, and reformulation of cultural content.
