In 2010, Lyon completed his PhD dissertation, “Lifting the Color Bar from the House of God: The 1963-1964 Church Visit Campaign to Challenge Segregated Sanctuaries in Jackson, Mississippi,” which examines a civil rights campaign by students and faculty at Tougaloo College to engage in interracial dialogue and worship with white Christians in Mississippi’s capital city during the 1960s. He has taught at St. Mary’s Episcopal School in Memphis since the Fall 2011. He oversees the history curriculum as chair of the History Department and teaches AP U.S. and Honors U.S. History to the sophomore class.

Brown Bags occur on select Wednesdays during the school year in the Tupelo Room of Barnard Observatory.
