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” heartbreakingly reflects on home and the complexities of belonging to a place with complicated history.
For lighter reads, we have summer-ready sections of book reviews, a tantalizing Food & Philosophy section of Persian cuisine in the Ozarks, stunning photography and many short personal essays.
Remember, when you buy a copy of The New Territory, you’re not only getting more intimate with the Lower Midwest. You’re directly supporting the writers, artists and thinkers who are helping rebuild our region into something even more beautiful.
