Eric Lassiter received the 2005 Margaret Mead Award from The Society for Applied Anthropology and the American Anthropological Association. The award is given to projects that interpret anthropological data and principles in ways that make them meaningful to the public. The purpose of Lassiter's study, The Other Side of Middletown, was to recount "the largely unrecorded history of Muncie's black community which the (initial and subsequent) researchers downplayed."
