dc.description.abstract Beginning with Robert S. and Helen Lynd's 1929 study, Middletown and continuing through subsequent works, Muncie has become one of the most researched small cities in America. However, the African American community was openly disregarded in "Middletown" and continually underrepresented in later research.In 2002, a project was started to help remedy this research gap. Under the guidance of Luke Eric Lassiter, Beth Campbell and Hurley Goodall, Ball State students at the Virginia B. Ball Center for Creative Inquiry worked with community members to write a collaborative ethnography entitled The Other Side of Middletown. The work sought to record conversations concerning the history and current state of Muncie's African American community.In 2003, I began a photographic project under the same name. This project aspires to complement and supplement the collaborative ethnography. By utilizing a photojournalistic approach, the project paints an intimate portrait of life within the African American community of Muncie.
