Anthropologist and Historian


As an anthropologist and historian, Dr. Cynthia J. Sadler collaborates with non-profits in utilizing human-centered, asset-based approaches that can lead to sustained value and growth. She believes organizations can transform the way they view themselves and how they are viewed by others through implementing innovative approaches informed by their constituencies. Dr. Sadler has over 20 years of experience in nonprofit management, during which she has developed diverse intergenerational projects that emphasize education, empowerment, civic engagement, and cultural heritage. She has expertise in conducting evaluations, as well as, extensive experience in proposal, grant and report writing. Her research generally focuses on the New South with an emphasis on the Mid-South and Mississippi Delta. Within that framework, she examines the impact of race, class, gender and economics on cultural and geographical landscapes and public spaces. In addition to her work with numerous nonprofits, she also serves as Chief Engagement Officer for the Memphis Heritage Trail project.
