Spring 2022 SouthTalk: Summer Avenue Oral History Project presented by Annemarie Anderson, Simone Delerme, and Kelly Spivey
Summer Avenue, a six-mile section of US Highway 70, one of the first paved, signed highways in the US, has been known by a number of names over the years — the Broadway of America, Bristol Highway, and most recently, Nations Highway. But for the market owners, restaurateurs, and retail owners in this oral history collection, Memphis is simply home.

During this SouthTalk, attendees will hear from the three collaborators who collected these oral histories. They will screen short documentaries, filmed by Kelly Spivey, featuring some of the restaurateurs, market owners, and retailers interviewed for this project.

This event is cosponsored by the Southern Foodways Alliance and the Center for the Study of Southern Culture.
