What does it mean to rebuild? David Todd Lawrence and Elaine J. Lawless write about when advocacy failed the citizens of Pinhook, Missouri, a Black farming community on the banks of the Mississippi, flooded by the Army Corps of Engineers. Julianne Couch shows how communities and economies can be built around environmentally generative activities, sketching a Kansas ecosystem of balance and opportunity. And Tiara Blue’s “Tishomingo” is, in pure New Territory style, a reflection on home and the complexities of belonging to a place that is complicated and complex itself.
If quarantine or social justice work have you yearning to relax and read something a little lighter, we also have summer-ready sections of book reviews, a tantalizing Food & Philosophy section of Persian cuisine in the Ozarks, stunning photography and short personal essays that geek out about archives and journal about the flooding of 2019.
