From the site: "The goal of this project is to catalogue the history of interactions and conflicts between political activism and police surveillance in Memphis, and to make this information accessible to the public. The final product will be a website that contains an interactive timeline of such events. This research is intended to create a resource that can grant greater transparency to our understanding of our history and of the history of our city."



This site comprises publicly accessible resources, such as pictures, articles, and documents obtained via open records requests, and original content. This site will be updated and maintained. Much of the success of this site is dependent on contributors. While attempting to make the timeline as comprehensive as possible, there will always be gaps. If you have texts or stories that fill in these gaps, or any relevant or needed information, please send an email to, or simply click the Contribute button below.
