A city equal parts darkness and hope. A scarred city. An often violent one. But a resilient city, too.
That's our Memphis.
Like many cities we have a namesake - in Egypt, Men-nefer became Menfe became Memphis, enduring and beautiful, on the banks of the Nile. Centuries later, another continent, another people, another river: Memphis, Tennessee, the soul of the Mississippi Delta, was formed. We are a place born of history, inhabited as much by memory as by the living - the past and present inextricably and inescapably linked....
Memphis is marvels and misfits - two-faced and unabashedly so. We are Memphis, and this is our noir.
