Klondike Memory Project: Reaffirming, Reclaiming, and Repairing Identity in Klondike Memphis

The Klondike Memory Project is a participatory action research project that collaborates with the leaders of the Klondike community to ensure that long-erased neighborhood memories are preserved in future development plans. We maintain that histories matter and must shape present-day planning practices. To this end, we are building a digital and physical archive honoring the neighborhood's role in local and national discussions surrounding race, erasure, repair, and resistance.
