A Better Mid-South: Humans of Memphis

A Better Mid-South: Humans of Memphis

Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Action News 5 general manager:

(WMC) - Everybody has a story. That's the concept for a new project by Kirstin Cheers. She's the photographer behind the Humans of Memphis project.

By posting short dialog with pictures, Cheers is hoping to ignite change in the community.

This is similar to another project you may have heard of called Humans of New York.

Despite all the negative we hear, I still believe most people in the Mid-South are good and do good things.

This is a perfect way to highlight that good.

I believe you will meet some of the nicest and most unique people living in our neighborhoods as you travel the Mid-South.

I encourage you to go on line and check out Humans of Memphis.

You can read more about it and see the photos by following the link: http://www.wmcactionnews5.com/story/26098308/humans-of-memphis-a-look-at-everyday-overlooked-conversation. Highlighting the good in our communities will go a long way toward making this A Better Mid-South.
