Sunday 

The East Tennessee History Center will be screening "The Lost World Of East Knoxville: A Walk with Bob Booker" this Sunday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. In 2020, Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection Manager Steve Cotham joined  Knoxville historian Robert J. Booker on a walk through Booker's former neighborhood, known as The Bottom. Heartland Series videographer Doug Mills captured this historic stroll on video, as Booker recounts the history of the area encompassing the Civic Coliseum, the Old City and First Creek, before urban renewal radically changed the city's landscape. The 40-minute video serves as a first-hand account of The Bottom pre-1960s and includes photographs and film that make Booker's memories come alive.
