Discover the vibrant history of Knoxville, Tennessee, in this series of articles from Jack Neely''s acclaimed ''Secret History'' column in Knoxville''s "Metro Pulse." Neely delves into the shadows of centuries past and weaves a path of local history with unmistakable wit and precision. Learn about the people who made Knoxville the ''obscure prismatic city'' through their genius, bravery or even impiety- natives like Adolph Ochs, whose fear of the old Presbyterian cemetery kickstarted his ascent to the editor s desk at the "New York Times"; Clarence Brown, the University of Tennessee graduate turned Hollywood icon; and Knoxville''s own Mark Twain. Learn about race riots, labor riots and good old-fashioned drunken riots, and discover why Knoxville is Tennessee''s forgotten music city.
