BTH: Whitehaven Revitalization Efforts


Whitehaven has a lot to offer, including amazing local food, Graceland, a Greyhound bus station, First Memphis Plaza, and more. Over the past several decades, however, Whitehaven has seen major disinvestment, says the Director of Greater Whitehaven Economic Redevelopment Corporation Michael O. Harris. 

This week on Channel 10’s Behind the Headlines Harris and the Founder of I Love Whitehaven Neighborhood & Business Association Pearl "Eva" Walker join host Eric Barnes and Daily Memphian reporter Bill Dries. Harris and Walker talk about working with other organizations and people to aid in the revitalization of Whitehaven - highlighting the importance of Whitehaven and investments in the community.

In addition, guests talk about the pros and cons of Whitehaven's housing market, and the improvements being made.
