Praise For…


“With the arguable exceptions of Elvis Presley and Martin Luther King Jr., no historical character has had greater influence in shaping the nature of Memphis than Edward Hull Crump. His influence, both good and otherwise, is still powerful today; yet, Willie Herenton led the pivotal reversal to African American leadership for modern Memphis. Otis Sanford’s From Boss Crump to King Willie provides the best understanding of this aspect of Memphis’s history and will be required reading for students, scholars, and anyone who wants a lucid, readable account of the city’s past experiences.” —Charles W. Crawford, professor of history, University of Memphis
