“WOMAN IN THE ARENA, CAROL CHUMNEY VERSION,” COMMERCIAL APPEAL (USA TODAY) ARTICLE -FEB. 13, 2022

By Mark Russell, Executive Editor, “It’s a story rooted in Memphis politics. Carol Chumney, former state representative and Memphis councilwoman, recently published a book that is equal parts a Memphis political history lesson and case study on her attempts to scale Memphis’ political ladder. The book is titled, simply, “The Arena: One Woman’s Story.” “Maybe I need to bring change by writing a book because the glass ceiling is still there,” said Chumney, who noted that women in Tennessee have never been elected governor, to the U.S. congress in West Tennessee or to the Memphis or Shelby County mayor’s office.”
