About

The Memphis Mirror is a project of the Multimedia News Lab, which is the capstone news journalism class at the University of Memphis. The goal of the project is to hold a mirror to the city of Memphis and reflect the various cultures, religions, identities, abilities and truths the city has to offer. At the Mirror, we rely on various media platforms—like audio, video, maps, photography and infographics—to tell the stories of our city.

The sections for the site include:

Students in the Department of Journalism’s reporting class contribute the Humans of Memphis section of the site. The feature is an assignment completed each semester by students in Pamela Denney’s section of the class.

Contributors to the remainder of the site are students in the News Lab. Each semester, a new crop of contributors will work to find stories that may not receive coverage in other media outlets. If you have a story idea of the class, please contact us using the form below.
