In my first real outing since my concussion, The Daughter and I chose one of the hottest days of the summer so far (95F with a heat index of 108) to go walking around downtown. We both like the heat, so that wasn't a problem, but we did get thirsty. Very thirsty.
The Withers Collection Museum and Gallery is run by the daughter of Ernest C. Withers, who was a local Civil Rights era icon. He was born in Memphis in 1922. Active for 60 years as a photographer, he chronicled important moments in music, sports, and civil rights. He died in Memphis in 2007 at the age of 85. The museum opened in 2011 on Beale Street and is definitely worth going through. The photographs are nicely displayed with informative descriptions, and they are an important part of Memphis history.
Here's a 3-minute introductory video:
You can see some of the photographs at the museum website.
