Jackson, LaRosa Take on the Flood


Two Rhodes history professors have recently written essays on the great Memphis flood of 2011. Prof. Jeffrey Jackson has written an op-ed piece in the Memphis News on how the flood brought the city together. Prof. Mike LaRosa’s essay, part of a multi-part series in the Commercial Appeal on issues facing Hispanics, focuses on how the flood shows the need for better housing in our community.
